Cottonwood is the heart of Arizona Wine Country. It isn’t just because of its perfectly situated location, close enough to Sedona, just down the road from Page Springs, or at the bottom of the hill from Jerome. It’s the location along the banks of the Verde River, the base of Mingus Mountain, and the center of high desert terrain with a unique climate, making a perfect mix for the science and art of wine making.
Cottonwood is home to nearly 10 wine tasting rooms, countless restaurants serving Arizona
wines, merchants with local product or Arizona produced goods that go hand in hand with wine from cheeses to olive oil. Cottonwood is a place to explore, sip, and share in the art of wine making.
It isn’t just wine visitors come for. Cottonwood has embraced the slogan: You Are Welcome
Here, and for good reason. Visitors will find a state park less than two miles from Old Town,
Dead Horse Ranch State Park. Here explorers of all ages can hit the trails on foot, bike or
horseback and discover the terrain that has led many to call Cottonwood home for decades.
After the outdoor exploration, dining outside with ideal temperatures for breakfast, lunch or
dinner, can all be done in Old Town where the food options are as varied as the shopping
selection to take part in after.
With partners like Friends of the Verde River, working to conserve and protect the Verde River, visitors are encouraged to explore the outdoors, enjoy the opportunities to recreate on the water, but also be mindful to take care of the precious resource flowing through the
community. Leave no trace, take only photos to capture the memories!
