About the Vineyard:
Arizona’s highest elevation vineyard, winery and producer at 6,100 feet is located in the White Mountains of northeastern Arizona. Red Rock Ranch Vineyards is part of an evolving Arizona wine circle tour that can now include northeastern Arizona.
Vines grown at Red Rock Ranch Vineyards: Pinot Noir, Barbara, Petit Verdot, Tempranillo, Malbec, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Voignier.
Viticulture in Arizona began in the 16th century when missionary Spanish Jesuit priests began to plant grapevines and make wine for use in Christian religious ceremonies.
The vineyard shares the ground with lavender fields. The high altitude, pristine climate and ecosystem is ideal for growing both grapes and lavender following in the steps of Southern France. It all began in 1996 with the planting of lavender. Planting a vineyard was a complimentary pairing with the lavender fields.
The lavender grown (now 35,000 plants) and the products and lavender plants sold have been a success story and each year a lavender festival is hosted when the lavender is in bloom.

About Our Winemaker and Red Rock Ranch Vineyards Wine Releases:
Our Winemaker has made wine across the world over two decades. He equates our first harvest off the Red Rock Ranch Vineyards to some of the great Pinots he has made in Carneros, Russian River and Santa Maria.
Now resting in exclusively French Oak barrels, it will surely be one of the best the state has seen given our high elevation and patience to wait 5 years for our first Pinot Noir Harvest.
Our goal is to release the Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris at Red Rock Ranch Vineyards and Desert Rock Tasting Room in Scottsdale in early Fall 2020.
Also available in the near future are Red Rock Ranch Vineyards Barbara, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Vignoir.
