Description

from Alcantara Estate Vineyard Tasting Experience
If you just want to dip your toes into the river and enjoy some of Northern Arizona’s best wines, then this is your perfect tour. At just three hours long, this tour takes you to one of the most pristine and beautiful settings, Alcantara Vineyard, the largest estate vineyard of the region.

Our tour begins with admiring the abundance of red rock formations that surround our region as we travel west out of Sedona towards Alcantara Vineyard. Upon arrival, you will see why this is one of our favorite spots. Nestled on the banks of the Verde River, Alcantara is a beautiful place to relax and sample Arizona wines, sunshine and the company of those you cherish. From the back deck and lawn, you will see caves and Indian ruins that date back to over 1,000 years ago.

Encompassing nearly 80 acres of available land, this is also the area’s largest continuous vineyard. The vineyard produces about 15 different wines annually, ranging from fruity whites to big and bold reds. There is sure to be a wine here to meet your fancy. For those liking dessert wines, we love their Port.

We can even take a stroll down through the vineyard to the wedding chapel located on premises. Also on the property is the confluence of the Oak Creek and the Verde River. For those of you that may be enjoying the Oak Creek while visiting Sedona, this is where it ends and turns into the Verde River. This connection point of two waterways, the confluence, inspired the name for one of Alcantara Vineyard’s finest wines. In the limestone cliffs adjacent to where these rivers meet, you will see cliff dwellings dating back to the Anasazi and Sinagua Indian cultures.

If your tour takes place on a Friday or Saturday, and we can get you to the vineyard by 11:30 a.m., you will also experience a special vineyard tour by one of the knowledgeable staff of Alcantara.

Note: If your tour runs later than your scheduled time or you choose to extend your tour, you are responsible for the added time at our normal rates.

Minimum of 2 people required for tour to operate.

I enjoyed a sunset tour of Sedona with Jim and my dog! Jim provided me with information about an amazing hike looking over Sedona and was a wealth of information about anything I wanted to know about the area.

Great experience!!! Jim was amazing. It was more than expected. I wish I had 4 more hours on this tour. I would come back to Sedona just to have Jim take out again. He might be a little bit pricy compared to others, but remember, you get what you pay for. This was well worth the money!! Thank you Jim

"Sedona Scenic Adventure Tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 04, 2020
We signed up for the 3 hour Sedona Scenic Adventure Tour. In this tour, Jim takes you around Sedona in his tour vehicle. We signed up for this tour instead of one of those open jeep tours because 1. it was FREEZING in Sedona at this time, and also 2. because we had our dog with us. Jim's tour is dog friendly so he brought his dog along too. Jim was super friendly and knowledgable, and very passionate about Arizona. He is open in terms of scheduling his tour around what you want, so make sure you communicate and tell him exactly what you are looking for. So this tour specifically was us learning about Sedona from the car. We made a few stops: a chocolate shop, a place to buy Native goods, a panoramic viewpoint, and I asked to stop somewhere else which we did. I think it's my fault for not reading the description online closely...I was hoping to get out more than the stops we made, but I didn't communicate that during the tour. Looking back, I would have loved for him to take us on some hiking trail that locals know about. If you want a tour where you are getting out a lot and walking around, ask him if he can arrange that for you.
