Prescott Arizona Winery Wine Tasting – Granite Creek Vineyards

Granite Creek Vineyards Chino Valley, Arizona

Did you know that Arizona has 40 wineries and vineyards? Prescott and the Verde Valley are home to hundreds of acres of vineyards, farmed by five distinct wineries. Dry and high elevation weather creates Napa like climate. Most of them are family own and their productions are limited.

Over the weekend me and my husband went camping near Prescott AZ. We always try to visit wineries where ever we go. Granite Creek Vineyards was located just 20 minutes North from Prescott. Why not try it! Granite Creek Vineyards are award winning, one of few US 100% Certified Organic wineries.

Tasting menu was

  • Superstition Gold, Pinot Gris
  • Dry Rose’
  • 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Pinot Noir
  • Wild Grape Blush

Tasting price was $10/person. I think its reasonable for 5 tastings. The Pinot Gris was grape fruit and lime aroma with very crispy and clean finish. Dry Rose and Cabernet Sauvignon was too dry for me. Especially Cabernet, tannin was over powered I thought. Pinot Noir was mild and light. My favorite was Wild Grape Blush. It made from concentrated grapes like Welch’s grape juice. And aroma was “welch’s”. It has sparkling wine like bubble. Unfortunately they only sell Blush at their winery so I couldn’t take it home. One thing I did not like was tasting pour was so little! I mean little. I was like “that’s it?”. I understand its “tasting” not drinking but…..(see below picture)

Granite Creek Vineyards Wine Tasting

Overall, I had a great experience. The patio was very pretty and well laid out. They had on-site food service (food truck) and the food looked delicious. I wasn’t hungry so didn’t try it.
