Welcome to the Jerome Winery!
Built on the side of Cleopatra Hill between Prescott and Sedona in the historic town of Jerome, featuring over 30 uniquely handcrafted, individually distinct, wines.
From the Phoenix 2008 Arizona Travel Guide, author Ashlea Deahl writes: "Savor a Sip and a Story at Jerome Winery. Forget everything you've read and heard about Jerome. If you want a good story, paired with a good glass of local wine, head to Jerome Winery, located within walking distance of Jerome's main strip.

Our vintner's philosophy is very spartenistic; create wines that are enjoyable for the novice and the connoisseur alike. Unlike most winemakers, our vintner learned the art of wine making by training as an apprentice under master winemakers throughout the United States and Europe.
Starting with a sassy white Zinfandel we transcend through the lighter wines such as the Pinot Grigio and Mourvedre, progressing to the more robust red Zinfandel and Syrah, finishing with the smooth Muscat and Champagne. For masterful enjoyment we reserve library wines including Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Syrah, 15 year old Port, and others soon to be added.
John Michael offers more than 30 distinct wines, from Chardonnays to Cabs, as well as the requisite accessories, gifts and snacks to go along with them. Best of all, he works the vines, which are located in Southern Arizona, himself, (he has the farmer's tan to prove it). Our grapes are grown in our own vineyard in Willcox amid the Willcox Wine Country. See a photographic slideshow of John, La Patrona, (John's Mother) and many more family members and friends harvesting this years crop of beautiful and ever so sweet grapes!
John's Sister Melanie can be found behind the copper counter pouring and telling stories of their own. Jerome has no shortage of interesting tales as well as interesting characters. The wines this year feature labels of old family photos and most of the labels come with a story.
