PRESENCE IN THE COMMUNITY
The Southwest Wine Center at Yavapai College is a premier wine industry and community resource, offering a comprehensive hands-on education from vineyard-to-bottle with programs in enology, viticulture and business/entrepreneurship through its estate vineyard, teaching winery, fully-operational tasting room, and region-wide wine industry research epicenter.
The Arizona Wine Growers Association (AWGA) serves grape growers and winemakers in Arizona, allying its members for representation, promotion and education. The association strives to advance with integrity the sustainable growth and production of authentic Arizona-grown wines.
The Verde Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) is located in Yavapai County, approximately 100 miles north of the Phoenix metropolitan area. The northern boundary separates the AVA from the Coconino National Forest, primarily following the 3,800-foot elevation contour because the terrain becomes too steep for cultivation above that elevation.
There are many Arizona wineries and tasting rooms on the Verde Valley Wine Trail that offer a variety of skillfully crafted wines to satisfy any wine taster’s palate. Every winery has its own unique personality and distinct wines for visitors to discover at each stop along the Wine Trail. Either get your passport stamped or Download our App and check-in along the Wine Trail!

Arizona might bring to mind cacti, tumbleweeds and sandstorms, but the elevation and arid climate of Arizona’s Verde Valley
