Ignacio Mesa, owner of Clear Creek Vineyard and Winery, was one of the first wine makers to recognize the potential the Verde Valley has to offer as a grape region. Starting over 10 years ago, Mesa has been using organic farming methods to grow his grapes that he then makes into his Rio Claro Wine. His winery and vineyard are open Wednesday through Saturday for guests to stop by and enjoy a wine tasting.
Salt Mine Wine planted grapes and developed their own vineyard and winery on a historic farm off Salt Mine Road. They have released a limited production of vintage Arizona wines. Their tasting room is open every Saturday and holidays.
