Freitas Vineyard

Freitas Vineyard, located in the quaint town of Cottonwood, AZ, is a small micro winery that produces small quantities of intensely hand-crafted estate wines produced in the European tradition. Our mission is to produce fruit forward wines, well balanced in flavor, color and aroma in order to stimulate and enhance your wine tasting experience. The first wine vines were planted March 4, 2000. The initial concept for developing a vineyard came from a passion of growing things. First, there were gardens, then organic fruit, and eventually came the vines.

Our vineyard is known to be the second oldest in the Verde Valley, and from the start, it truly was an experiment. There are many factors that play a role in growing wine in the Valley. The choice of varietals that will flourish in this unique terroir has been critical. The challenges of the climatic conditions, water and vineyard management, and wine making skills combined contribute to the development of fine wines. This ‘experimentation’ process has led us to determine what varietals grow exceptionally well at Freitas Vineyard. As an example, our Malvasia Bianca has produced a consistent brilliant white wine full of tropical flavors and aromas. Our Petite Sirah produces a deep, dark, rich, bold wine. Our Merlot, Cabernet and Sangiovese are stellar in their own right.

The reason why these wines are unique and ‘special’ is because they aren’t produced in such mass commercial quantities. The personal daily involvement is not only a passion but a true art of the heart of a wine maker, typically lost in larger enterprises.

Our goal is to value and appreciate your experience of wines that are produced in the Northern AZ valley. Our approach is personal and intimate. We strive for the highest quality by investing many personal hours of direct, hands on care. This kind of dedication is poured into each and every bottle. The commitment of Freitas Vineyard is to the person who will absolutely appreciate a one-of-a-kind wine experience. We produce honest, unique, delectable wines for a reasonable price because our wines are estate grown. Each vintage will be slightly different and representative of the year it was grown and harvested. No two vintages will ever been exactly the same.

We at Freitas Vineyard invite you to join us as we continue to grow and develop these fines wines one at a time, and thoroughly enjoy what each new year will bring.
