There’s no doubt about it, Jeri’s favorite stop to include on any wine tour is D.A. Ranch. The boutique vineyard is a historic location for wine and special events. Located just minutes from Sedona and Old Town Cottonwood, the ranch is located between picturesque views of House Mountain and Oak Creek, one of the most beautiful areas in the state of Arizona. Fed by natural artesian springs and harvested to create the 100% estate-grown, limited production wines, the vineyard produces some of the most unique wines in the region.
As Northern Arizona’s only 100% estate-grown vineyard many varietals are vinified on the property including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Tannat, and Seyval Blanc. Because of the unique microclimate and terroir or the land, wines are rich in minerals, highlighted by earth and fruit characteristics. Wine Tastings are available during select days from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and do not require reservations unless you are a group of 13+ or more. The tasting room offers wines available for sale by the glass in or as a part of a tasting flight. Current wine lists are available online and available to enjoy by the glass in the tasting room, on the porch, or within the boundaries of any one of the expansive outdoor seating areas.
After your day at the ranch, we welcome you back home to The Sanctuary at Sacred Mesa, where you can uncork the exclusive bottle of your favorite wine, and relax in our 45-foot Infinity Edge Pool. Let us take care of dinner and customize your meal to pair perfectly with your varietal of choice. Cheers!
