Sedona Wineries, Wine Bars and Breweries: the best way to unwind after a day of hiking
If you’re in Sedona, you are probably there to enjoy the scenery and do some short hikes in Sedona. And rightfully so…it’s insanely gorgeous. But, while you probably didn’t expect it, Sedona wineries and breweries are worth a visit when traveling to the picturesque and iconic Sedona.
We have been twice and both times we have gone to the Sedona wineries and breweries after a full day of hiking to unwind and celebrate our summits with a drink.
You might be surprised that this little town has a lot of local wine and beer to offer.

Sedona wineries / wine bars
*Note: Alot of articles cover the Verde Valley which means the majority of wineries are NOT physically located in Sedona.
If you want to see all the Verde Valley wineries, check out this post.
But if you are looking to do some wine tastings physically in Sedona, keep on reading!
While Vino Zona technically isn’t one of the Sedona wineries, this boutique wine bar features a great selection of local wines all from Arizona.
The small and cozy tasting room is located in the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village in Sedona, which is less than a mile from the main downtown area.
There are numerous shops, restaurants, and even a second location of Oak Creek Brewery (see below) within walking distance.
Vino Zona focuses on highlighting small-batch Arizona wine, made using 100% Arizona-grown grapes. The selections change often and are hand-picked to provide the best of the best.
You can buy bottles of anything, enjoy a glass of wine, or enjoy a flight of 5 wines (what we did) to taste a little bit of everything from Arizona all in one place!
They have two locations: this one in Sedona and another in the nearby town of Jerome which overlooks the Verde Valley.
The folks serving the wine are self-proclaimed wine geeks, happy to help you figure out the best wine for you and to impart their wine wisdom upon you.
If you’re short on time and want to experience several Arizona wines from different winemakers, Vino Zona is the place.
While there are over 25 wineries within a close proximity to Sedona, Winery 1912 is the only one of the Sedona wineries to call downtown Sedona its home.
Winery 1912 specializes in Spanish and Iberian varietals all grown at their Dragoon Mountain Vineyard in Willcox, Arizona.
The same folks behind Winery 1912 are also running operations at Tantrum Wines in Old Town Cottonwood and The Original Jerome Winery in Jerome.
The vineyard, which is said to be Arizona’s largest and most diverse, was planted over two decades and has been producing unique and delicious grapes from this wine region ever since.
And while you may think that wine in Arizona is a new phenomenon, Jesuit priests brought the first vines to what we now call Arizona in the late 1690s, which is over 200 years before Arizona became our 48th state!
In addition to the great wine, which you can have in flight or glass form, their tasting room has an amazing view out the back window.
It’s one of the Sedona Arizona wineries with great wine and great views. So grab yourself a glass of wine and enjoy the view!
We think this is a must-do stop when you’re looking to drink wine in Sedona.
The Art of Wine is a locally-owned wine shop and tasting bar that has cultivated a large selection of Arizona wines and wines from all across the globe.
With over 300 wines to choose from, this husband-and-wife team has crafted a wine oasis in downtown Sedona.
They offer flights from local winemakers, wines by the glass, and bottles to go. In addition to wine, they offer craft beer, mead, and snacks.
We love this shop because you can try a variety of Arizona wines in a single location.
We have traveled all around the state to visit these different wineries, but we could have tried them all here too
Vino di Sedona is a wine and craft beer bar located about five minutes away from the craziness of downtown.
This is a solid option if you’re looking to taste some more Arizona wines and craft beer.
With over 900 wines in their bottle shop, you can grab a bite to eat and kick back to some live music in their courtyard.
We both enjoyed the Caprese skewers while Sam enjoyed a glass of wine and Chris grabbed a beer. Be sure to spend some time browsing through their wine and beer shop too.
We ended up finding a bottle that we couldn’t live without and took it home with us.
One of the two breweries in this beautiful town, Sedona Beer Company is making “Beer for Here”. And that means more than just a fun place to hang out and drink craft beer. It’s about making beer that connects you with where you are.
What better way to do that than by using malt that is all grown and processed in the same Verde Valley region?! Sedona Beer Co. is also a certified sustainable business and uses “squarrels” (square barrels) to barrel-age their beers which uses less wood and water than a standard barrel without compromising the integrity of the beer.
The tasting room and brewery is located just behind all of the busy-ness of downtown Sedona and offers a full food menu (including beer cheese and bacon fries…just sayin’) to go along with their diverse draft lineup.
Some of their beers include the Kölschture Shock (incredibly drinkable), Pink Drink (wheat beer with prickly pear, pomegranate, raspberry, and honey), and the Honey Golden Barrel-Aged Sour which was funky and delicious.
While the overall environment may feel a bit like you’re drinking in the basement of your friend-turned-homebrewer, Oak Creek Brewing Co. is Sedona’s first craft brewery and has been whetting thirsty travelers’ whistles for over 20 years.
The original location is right off the main drag through Sedona, 89A, but a couple miles away from the craziness of downtown.
The tasting room shares a space with the large fermentation tanks for that true “brewery” experience. An outdoor beer garden/patio is also perfect for the numerous live music events they have throughout the year.
Oak Creek’s draft menu is fairly standard, but all beers are true-to-style and very good.
The Hefeweizen has all of those notes of banana and cloves and won a Gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival back in the day.
The Nut Brown ale is incredibly flavorful and one of the house favorites, while the King Crimson is an imperial red ale that is very malty and delicious.
If you’re closer to downtown Sedona, they also have a sister brewery, under the same name, near the Vino Zona tasting room (from above).
The second location has a great food menu and those red rock views for which Sedona is known.
Overall – Sedona Arizona Wineries and Breweries
While there aren’t many Sedona Arizona wineries and breweries in true downtown Sedona, they are still fun to visit after a day of taking in the gorgeous red rocks.
And there are even more wineries and breweries in nearby Jerome, Cottonwood, and Page Springs (these 3 plus Sedona are known as the Verde Valley), and Prescott, making this a great place to enjoy some great hiking and some great local booze.
They are 100% worth the trip over there and have recently become an AVA region for wine!
