Travel Arizona Wine Country: Sonoita

The CAST 11 Podcast Network is sponsored by the Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit. Where adventure comes together.

Southern Arizona’s Sonoita region is the first American Viticulture Area (AVA) in the United States. Distinctive for its climate and soil characteristics to Indicazone Geografica Tipica region of Italy, the Sonoita region produces award-winning Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, and more. The breath-taking, wide-open scenery of this scenic corner of Arizona is a must-see.

Originally settled as a mining and cattle ranching country, the Sonoita region defies everything you would expect from Southern Arizona. The green, rolling hills of the Sonoita region are a welcome respite from the hot, dry deserts of Phoenix, Tucson, and South-Central Arizona. Beautiful wineries and vineyards look upon rich vistas full of wildflowers, gnarled oaks, and stately ash trees await your escape.
