Award winning LDV Wine Gallery is one of 5 tasting rooms in Old Town Scottsdale. Their 100% estate vineyard is located in the Chiricahua Mountains, about 4 hours south of Phoenix,yet at a much higher elevation. Phoenix is around 1100 feet and this winery is around 5.000 feet. The vineyard sits about 30 miles south of the actual 'Willcox Bench' where most of the Arizona vineyards are located. It is such a unique location with volcanic soils. No other agriculture has been grown on the property and the grapes are similar to those grown in the Rhone Valley of France, and express ripe rich fruit as they are picked in late October. Like no other in Arizona.

Rhone Varietals have a huge presence at Page Springs but you will also see a plethora of lesser known varietals. They place a large amount of emphasis on creating unique and exciting smaller batch wines. Owner, Eric Glomski loves the balance and experiments at each level.
