It’s Harvest Season At Javelina Leap Vineyards And Winery

Javelina Leap Vineyards and Winery processes approximately 44 tons of Arizona grown grapes equaling about 2,600 cases of fine Javelina Leap Arizona wine. When visiting, guests will be sampling wines at a fully functional vineyard and winery. Enjoy a tour of the winery and barrel room while sipping wine or relax in the Arizona room and private garden where the winery serves artisan cheese platters, deli meats and wines by the glass or bottle.

During the harvest season (August to October) visitors can watch wine actually being made. Arizona grapes are picked, de-stemmed, fermented, pressed, aged, bottled and labeled at Javelina Leap, which also boasts a 100-barrel capacity cellar.

During harvest season, the winery provides an air-conditioned Arizona Room where patrons can enjoy appetizers/tapas and a seasonal menu while looking out on the crush pad to view the crush and all that it involved daily. Harvest, punching, pressing and barreling will take place from mid-August through the end of crush – around the end of September to mid-October.

Javelina Leap is a family operated, premium boutique winery with award-winning wines. The winery is in Northern Arizona’s Verde Valley, only minutes away from Sedona in the small historic valley of Page Springs, and is open daily from 11am-5pm.
