There are wine shops in Marana, but there is only one winery in the area, and it is one that has been developing a strong reputation for quality wines. Old Pueblo Cellars is a winery with its own tasting room on-site. It is open most afternoons and has three wine tastings a day, but reservations are required.
At these tastings, you will have an opportunity to taste six native wines made at Old Pueblo Cellars – two white wines and four red. Old Pueblo Cellars is a family-owned winery on eight acres of Sonora Desert land, and the family found some heat-loving grape varieties - Viognier, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Sangiovese, and Tempranillo – to create desert-native wines that have been enjoyed since the vineyard opened in 2013.
Old Pueblo Cellars is happy to host parties and provide wine-tasting for the entire group. The winery has a helpful and knowledgeable staff who can learn your flavor preferences and find the perfect wine for you to enjoy. A calming, fun and beautiful experience can be had in the spacious tasting room at Old Pueblo Cellars.
