Charron Vineyards & Winery
About 30 minutes outside of downtown Tucson is Charron Vineyards & Winery, most well-known for their white merlot. It is one of Arizona’s oldest vineyards and, at 4,200 feet in elevation, enjoys warm summer days with cool nights – a perfect growing condition for grapes. On deck are daily wine tastings that visitors can enjoy with their pups on the outdoor patio, surrounded by spectacular views of the nearby Santa Rita Mountains. The vineyard was started by Milton and Susan Craig, a husband-wife team who moved to the area after retiring from their careers in the technology industry. Charron Vineyards has four acres of mature vines and another five acres available for future growth.
