About

At Page Springs Cellars, our goal is to create delicious wines that express the unique character of our landscape. We trust that our wines and wine making convey our philosophies concerning family, education and living life to its fullest. We believe to make great wine we must take just as much responsibility for the lands we steward as the community we live in. We feel strongly that growing grapes, making wine and raising a glass is a cultural ritual that fosters friendship, brings together families, and unites communities. Good wine is not strictly the esoteric fare of nobility: Wine is for the people. We desire to share our passion and interest in wine with everyone from the first time sipper to the seasoned enthusiast. Providing academic and hands on experiences are a big part of this desire to help people expand and trust their own senses. Land, grapes, wine, friends, family, education and fulfillment. Wine is within everyone’s reach!!!

Winemaker

Eric Glomski

History

The creation of our wines starts with the finest Arizona grapes; from our Estate Vineyard in the Verde Valley to the southeast corner of the state, Page Springs collaborates with several vineyards in varying locations and climates on a quest to secure quality fruit to make wines that are an expression of these places.

From the foothills of the Chiricahua Mountains to Oak Creek slicing its way around House Mountain

Practices & Techniques

We farm our grapes without the use of petro-chemicals. Our fertility program centers on encouraging and sustaining a healthy and productive soil ecosystem. We use cover crops and animal manures and stay away from industrial, chemical insecticides and herbicides. In addition to our commitment to our land, we feel this approach produces cleaner, healthier and tastier grapes.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Our Estate Vineyard was planted in the spring of 2004 – seven years after our winemaker, Eric Glomski, first fell in love with this site. Glomski and his family purchased the land in late 2003 when it finally came up for sale.

Nestled along the banks of Sedona’s famous Oak Creek and on the lower flanks of House Mountain volcano, this site is truly unique. Sandy, clay-loam overlays a matrix of basaltic clasts (chunks of extruded volcanic rock) that are cemented by calcareous (chalky, alkaline, limestone-like) sediments derived from a larger geologic structure called the Verde formation. The subsoils here are alkaline (much like the limestone of the Southern Rhône and Burgundy). These soils will contribute character to our grapes and their alkalinity tempers the vigor of our aggressive Rhône varietals.

We have planted the following varietals at this site:
Syrah clone 383 – from Hermitage, France on the rootstock 1103P (planted in 2004)
Petite Sirah – Shell Creek Clone on rootstock 110R and 1103P (planted in 2004)
Grenache 1A – on rootstock 1103P (planted in 2009)
Traminette – on its own roots (planted in 2011)
Seyval Blanc – on its own roots (planted in 2011)

Generally speaking, we have a Mediterranean climate here in Page Springs. The bulk of our rain comes in the winter. Summers are generally hot and dry. Although summer temperatures can reach the high nineties (and in certain years they can pass one hundred), our summer highs are generally in the low 90s. Luckily, we also have up to a 40 degree fluctuation from day to night, which is critical for the development of flavors and other grape components that are critical to making fine wine.
