Have you discovered the wines of Willcox Wine Country? Come out and visit our wine tasting rooms where you will find world class wine, grown and produced right here in southeast Arizona.
The many Willcox wineries and wine tasting rooms are only about a one hour drive from Tucson!
Did you know? This area grows 74% of Arizona's wine grapes. It is also the source of the most highly rated Arizona wines by Wine Spectator, with 45 wines rated 88-90 over the past 5 years.
We put on two wine festivals each year – Spring, the third weekend in May – Fall, the third weekend in October. Our festival was rated by Fodor's Travel as one of the top-ten wine festivals in North America! Each festival is a weekend-long celebration featuring Arizona wines from the Willcox region, fantastic live music, and scrumptious food. The Festivals page has more details.
Big news! The Willcox area was recently granted prestigious AVA status (American Viticultural Area). The designation of the Willcox AVA means that this area is now recognized as a unique and distinctive wine growing region in the United States. Great wine has been made here for years, and now you'll start to see the "Willcox" appellation on wine labels from this region!
If you haven't yet come out to explore Willcox Wine Country, it's always a good time to discover what we have to offer! If you are already familiar, then maybe it's time for another visit to see what's new. There is always a newly released wine getting poured somewhere! We hope to see you soon.
