A Sensory Adventure
Savoring wine while soaking in the scenery of the Southwest has rapidly become world-famous here in Arizona’s Verde Valley, and it is quickly gaining notoriety as one of the finest regions for grape growing. In addition, it is a region where the appreciation of these varietals becomes more enjoyable while basking in high desert beauty.Verde Canyon Railroad has long been a venue for viticulture appreciation. Since 1990 train passengers have enjoyed raising a toast to the Arizona wilderness from well-appointed rail cars, harkening back to a time when relaxing travel by train was recognized as a hallmark of sophistication and class. In 2002 raising that toast became a highly-requested event called the Grape Train Escape. Going into its 20th year, this great grape celebration has spanned the planet – Italian, Chilean, Spanish, German, and French wines have been served to thousands of awe-inspired train passengers.
