Forget Napa – a darling boutique wine scene is thriving in the heart of Arizona, waiting for you. Create picturesque memories, pair wine with adventure, and celebrate your love of vineyards through some of Camp Verde’s Best Wine Experiences.
Verde Valley Wine Trail
Discover wine through your senses; the beauty of the riparian terrain, the smell of grapevines lacing several vineyards for miles and, of course, the taste of vintage wines from a plethora of wineries and tasting rooms on the Verde Valley Wine Trail. There are more than 22 wine stops on the trail, each with its own personality and distinct wines for visitors to uncover. The Verde Valley is a destination for wine enthusiasts to explore history, the hidden beauty and rugged terrain of northern Arizona and the production of exquisite Arizona wines.
Verde River Kayak Tour and Wine Tasting
The Classic Water to Wine Tour is an adventure you can savor in more ways than one. Start your morning on an inflatable kayak rumbling through the high desert oasis on the Verde River, and then spend the afternoon soaking in the fairytale views from the giant cottonwood trees. Head to the vineyards up the Tuscan farmhouse at Alcantara Vineyards for exquisite wine tasting. Your tour will even include a credit for wine to take home!
Spring Heritage Pecan and Wine Festival
Cleanse your palate between tastings with local pecans and celebrate the region’s budding wine scene at the Spring Heritage Pecan and Wine Festival! The festival showcases Camp Verde’s pecan growers and wineries every third week in March with nutty bites and wine tastings, vendors, music and more. Plan a few days to explore the Verde Valley wine region, because more lavish wine excursions are waiting for you after the festival in Verde Valley.
