Grapes maturing on the vines before the fall harvest at Coronado Vineyards in Willcox, Arizona.
The vineyard, located not far off I-10 by the Dos Cabezas Mountains, grows Malbec, Syrah, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese varietals and is the only winery in Arizona that has a full-service restaurant, in addition to their tasting room.
The Wine tasting and Tapas Lounge is open Monday through Saturday 9:30 am to 5:30 pm and Sunday 10 am to 4 pm. The facility has a large patio, a gazebo, and can be rented out for special occasions including weddings.
Managing owners Jacque and Mark Cook opened their doors in November 2006 and by 2008 had received their first award in winemaking for their Riesling Reserve. They have subsequently been awarded every year since for a variety of their wines. They create wines for every palate – sweet to dry.
