“We had a serious need for more fruit.” said winemaker, Kief Manning. “Since Willcox grows seventy-four percent of Arizona’s wine grapes, and is the source of the most highly rated Arizona wines by Wine Spectator, I felt this property would grant us the most opportunity for fruit quality and abundance. ”

The Willcox Wine Consortium consists of at least ten different wineries and tasting rooms, and is a perfect day trip for wine tasting.
