Carlson Creek Vineyard is a family owned winery and vineyard that was founded on the principal of building a multi generational business that can be passed down to future generations. As a result, the Carlson family went out in search for the perfect land to plant their grapes and found their property in 2008. Carlson Creek Vineyard purchased their 40 acre property in Wilcox, Arizona and planted their first grapes in 2009.
The vineyard is ran by Robert “Bob” Carlson Jr. and his two sons, Robert Carlson III and John Carlson, who is the winemaker. Their wines are almost entirely estate grown and are 100% Arizona. They include wine selections with varietals of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Syrah, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Grenache Rosé, Malbec and Mourvèdre, with Chenin Blanc and Merlot varietals being locally sourced. Carlson Creek is now home to over 280 acres in vineyards and their success was not only due to their award-winning wines, but also because of the demand for their grapes from other winemakers throughout Arizona.
