The Story Strive Vineyards is a family-owned-and-operated farm winery and vineyard in Cochise County, Willcox, Arizona. Our vineyard is located 25 minutes away from downtown, in the heart of the Willcox Bench Wine Country. This unique desert highland with sandy-loam and clay profile characteristics on the foothills of the Dos Cabezas mountain range offers superior soil and swift temperature changes from day to night which creates an exclusive and distinct fruit profile.
We purchased our vacant land in the Kansas Settlement area of the Willcox Bench in 2014, just before Willcox, Arizona was designated as an AVA. We are completely off-grid utilizing solar power for our well pump and green sustainable farming practices. As a husband and wife team, with the helping hands of a few family members and friends, we built everything ourselves from the ground up- solar panel arrays, fencing and gate, irrigation system, trellis system, and utility shed. The vineyard sits at 4,400 ft surrounded by gorgeous views of the Dos Cabezas, Chiricahua, and Dragoon mountain ranges.
