In the last decade, Arizona has been recognized as a producer of great wine. With the combination of the perfect soil and the ability to irrigate, the Verde Valley has become a popular wine region in Arizona, and is now home to over a dozen wineries and vineyards. In Camp Verde, we are proud to have two family owned and operated vineyards only a short distance from downtown.

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.
