There are other things to do in the Willcox area besides Apple Annie’s!
Here are a few of our favorites:
Coronado Vineyards – www.coronadovineyards.com
Nestled between the majestic Mt. Graham and the unique Dos Cabezas mountains, in the Coronado National Forest, a unique wine tasting experience awaits you.
Managing owners, Mark and Jacque Cook, and their partners dreamed of owning a beautiful winery with outstanding wines for many years. On November 18th, 2006 that dream became a reality with the Grand Opening of Coronado Vineyards. Coronado Vineyards presented nine unique wines, from a sweet white table wine to a dry red wine all from wine grapes grown here in sunny Arizona.
Coronado Vineyards produces some of Arizona’s finest wines. With elevations reaching over 4,000 ft, Arizona’s high desert is the perfect location for producing grapes of distinct quality and character. Warm summer days, cool nights, and mineral rich soils contribute to the intensity and wide range of flavors in these fine wines.
Sunglow Ranch – www.sunglowranch.com
Set on 475 acres in southeastern Arizona, this intimate ranch resort offers the activities and adventures of a traditional western guest ranch with the ambiance and amenities of a first class resort.
Each overnight stay is accompanied by a hearty, home-cooked breakfast and a delicious three-course dinner in the Sunglow Café.
Guests enjoy hiking the marked trail, bird-watching under the covered porches, playing bocce with family and friends, swimming in the 45-foot, solar-heated pool, and stargazing from the outdoor hydro-spa. And with 200,000 acres of Coronado National Forest abutting the ranch, opportunities for hiking, horseback riding and exploration on mountain bikes are plentiful.
Most of all Sunglow Ranch Resort offers you the opportunity to kick back and relax in the clean mountain air with beautiful, tranquil vistas at every turn. You’re invited to visit often and savor the magical serenity this land has to offer.
