Willcox Wine Country is a consortium of Arizona Farm Wineries located in the Willcox and Cochise county area in southeastern Arizona. The Willcox area leads the industry’s grape production by growing 74% of the state’s wine grapes and is the source of the most highly rated Arizona wines by Wine Spectator, with 45 wines rated 88-90 over the past 10 years. The area was recently designated the Willcox AVA (American Viticultural Area), making it federally recognized as a unique and distinctive wine growing region in the United States. Willcox Wine Country features 10 tasting rooms, tours, locally grown and produced wines and the semi-annual Willcox Wine Country Festival (held in May and October), which has been rated by Fodor's Travel as one of the top-ten wine festivals in North America.
