Arizona Stronghold - Uniquely Arizona – Our wines reflect our appreciation for the uniqueness of the Arizona earth and the characters that these locations lend to the finished product. We believe that the soils and climate at the vineyard stand up to the finest in the world, feeling strongly that the wines express, first and foremost, Arizona, and secondarily the grapes and hands of the vignerons involved.

The Oak Creek Vineyard & Winery has been serving up fantastic area wines since 2002. Though we are expanding more and more every year, we currently have approximately 4,000 plants on just over ten acres. In the higher elevations of the property we grow Syrah & Merlot and the lower portion is reserved for Zinfandel and Chardonnay. The intense sunshine of Arizona helps the plants achieve the sugar content we expect, and we have found that the cold nights and warm days create a perfect environment for our varieties. The volcanically enriched soil of the dessert also enhances the stock to create a one-of-a-kind flavor unique only to this region, resulting in full bodied flavorful reds and crisp, lean whites. With an annual barrel count of around 750, production is in small batches, allowing us to give individual attention to each barrel. Enjoy a wonderful selection of wines, cheeses, salami, and olives while relaxing in our newly renovated tasting room, which is now open daily, 10AM-6PM.
Sandy’s Produce, a place where growers large and small can list what is seasonal, fresh and ready to harvest, and members of the community can support the people who keep farming traditions alive here in our own neighborhood.

Pillsbury Wine Company is committed to making regional wines, wines from this place. We do not import grapes or wine. The wines we make come from this region and are phenomenal wines. The reds are distinctively fragrant, powerful and complex, and the whites have a unique viscous quality, with pronounced tropical fruit characters. I am partial to Rhone varieties, and want to plant Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Malvasia and Viognier. One of my ambitions has always been to make a great Arizona Chateauneuf, and here we have what it takes.
If you are coming to the Verde Valley, you need to taste the wines. Start first here, the Verde Valley Wine Consortium, to get your bearings and find the wineries you want to visit. Wines in the desert Southwest are a special experience you have to try.
