Page Springs Cellars for Wine & Music
We discovered a little area fun in Page Springs, which is only about 20 minutes from the hotel. Did you know that Sedona had a wine region? The small town of Page Springs is known for having several wineries and we were lucky enough to find ourselves at Page Spring Cellars last night. Turns out Friday and Saturday nights they have wine tasting and music! Would be a lot of fun to book a weekend at the hotel and visit the wineries. Our concierge would be great at setting that up.
I had been to Page Spring Cellars once before on a tour of their grounds, which I must say are beautiful. During the day you can walk through the vineyard down to the creek, where they have a great sitting area with tables and a view of the water.
It was too dark when we arrived at 6 for the tasting to see the vineyard, but we walked into a great little seating area. It had cute little curtained off partitions to sit in. We were 8 people and just fit in the bench style seating. There were also tables outside, but they were full-up when we got there.
For the tasting they had 5 different wine flights. Five types of wines in each flight. There was a white flight, red flight, Arizona flight, combo flight and member flight. Once you chose your flight, you would get a 1 ounce pour from each wine. Flights were $10. What I liked was that everyone would get a round and we could sit and talk, and then they would come with the next round, and so on. Twas a lot of fun.
I am not a wine connoisseur by any means, so having little tastes of different wines was nice…especially since I didn’t have to commit to a full glass. I chose the combo because it had a white, a rosé, and 3 reds. I normally like a rosé or white, so I knew I would at least like two of the wines. All of them were pretty good, in my opinion. According to my friends all of their wines were really good, and they know about wine.
We also munched on their bistro plate, which had an amazing variety of cheeses, crackers, olives, nuts and dried fruit; and their bruschetta combo, which offered 3 varieties of bruschetta. Both of these plates had generous portions.
I will have to make visiting Page Spring Cellars something I do more often, especially since Sedona is so beautiful at night this time of year. I would love to snag one of those outside tables and relax to the mellow music and wine.
