When it comes to wine country, Arizona doesn't usually come to mind. But the Verde Valley near Sedona offers the dry climate and access to water that grapes need to thrive. If you're a lover of vino, consider taking a day to follow the Verde Valley Wine Trail; this self-guided tour takes you to four of the area's most popular wineries  Alcantara Vineyards, Page Springs Cellars, Oak Creek Vineyards and Javelina Leap Vineyard  as well as six tasting rooms. Each of the stops allows you to tour the grounds and sample locally made wine. Recent trail followers praised the vineyards for their beautiful atmosphere and diverse selection. 

Verde Valley is a great place to visit if you're tired of the crowds or want to give your feet a break from all the hiking. After wine tasting, make sure to check out the rest of the little historical town home to the Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot

All four wineries are an easy drive from Sedona. Hours and prices will vary depending on the vineyard. For more information, visit the Verde Valley Wine Trail website.
