Aridus Wine Company opens new tasting room
Aridus Wine Company now has two locations to sample Willcox Wines. The new tasting room on Railview Avenue will feature Aridus wines exclusively, while the Haskell Avenue location will feature the portfolio of wines made at the custom crush facility.
Custom Crush Facility on Haskell Avenue
Currently, several vintners use the custom crush facility on Haskell Avenue. This tasting room will feature Aridus Wine Company releases as well as releases from vineyards who use the custom crush facility to make their wines. More than 10 Willcox area wines will be available to sample.
As of April 2014, wines available for tasting include selections from Golden Rule Vineyards, Sand Reckoner Vineyards, Carlson Creek Vineyards, Pillsbury Wine Company, and Zarpara Vineyards. More wines will be added to the portfolio as other vineyards use the facilities. The Haskell Avenue facility's tasting room is open 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and by appointment on Saturday and Sunday.

Aridus released its Sauvignon Blanc and Malvasia Bianca in March. The two new wines are in addition to the 2012 Chardonnay and the 2012 Syrah, which were released in fall 2013.
