Vineyards

Arizona’s wine industry is flourishing in Cochise County with the opening of new vineyards and tasting rooms. The majority of Arizona's wines are produced from Cochise County grapes.

  Aridus Wine Company has two tasting rooms where you can sample their award-winning wines. The first is at their custom crush facility on Haskell Avenue, where other area wines are made, and the second is their own tasting room on Railview Avenue.

  Bodega Pierce highlights wines made exclusively from grapes grown at the family’s estate vineyard in Willcox, AZ. The wines are designed to express the high desert terroir of the Willcox Bench that we have found to be unsurpassed in producing spectacular world class wines.
