Grapes at Hannah's Hill Vineyard are grown and produced in Arizona within a day's drive of your dinner table. They are sold to you directly by the people who produced them.
Carlson Creek Vineyard is a family owned vineyard and winery. Located in the heart of Cochise County in Southeastern Arizona, it is the realization of a deep-seated dream to create a multi-generational business and quality wines. Situated at 4200 feet above sea level, the vineyard takes advantage of the warm Arizona sun and the crisp, cool evenings to create the ideal environment for growing wine grapes. The vineyard concentrates on Rhone varietals that are complimented by the temperature and soils resembling those of the Rhone Valley in southern France.
Open for services. Allow 30 minutes-1 hour.
Six miles north of Ina Rd. on Oracle Rd. 30 minutes from central Tucson.
We currently have five acres designated for vineyards on our property. We originally planted many varietals that did not fit the micro climate that exists on our plot of land. Although it has a nice southerly facing slope, we thought the cold air drainage would be adequate with the falling eastern terrain. After several years of data points, we identified the need to change some of our varietals to cope with the late spring frosts and early fall frosts.
