The Arizona wine scene is growing every day. Most local groceries stores and higher-end beverage stores such as Total Wine and Bevmo carry dozens of Arizona-based varietals. But it’s worth the drive, especially to Cochise County, to see the vineyards and tasting rooms yourself.

The Willcox Wine Region is particularly impressive with more than a dozen great spots to sip. The regions host events, which include Sierra Vista Sips & Skies on May 26. Wineries include:

• Golden Rule
• Passion Cellars
• Flying Leap
• Carlson Creek
• Aridus
• Coronado
• Bogeda Pierce
• Zarpara
• Kief-Joshua
• Pillsbury
• Laramita Cellars
• Sand-Reckoner
• Four Trails
