Wine and Cider Tour

Sit back and enjoy an afternoon cruise through the beautiful Ozark countryside as you travel to our first destination, Tontitown Winery.  With it’s rich Italian history, the stories are endless at this historic locale. Enjoy learning about Tontitown, past and present, as you sip on some tasty, locally made wines. Next, we'll bring you back to your Arkansas roots with a cider tasting in downtown Springdale at the state's first and only operating cidery, Black Apple Crossing. We'll finish the tour with a drive out to the gorgeous Sassafrass Springs Vineyard for another wine tasting while taking in the beautiful views of the valley. Sassafrass Springs is nearly two years into their vineyard and has begun wine production using Vitis vinifera grape varietals from the west coast. What a wonderful opportunity to see the beginning stages of their operation.
