Desert Rock Winery is becoming one of the best hot spots for happy hour and wine tastings. Originally based out of the vinyards in Napa & Sonoma Valley, CA, our wines have been perfected over the course of our 14 years in wine making, as proven by our Award Winning Wines. DRW is an urban winery with a full scale production, ranging from receiving the raw products, to fermentation, to bottling...and you can see every step in the process with a visit! Not only can you taste our various blends of white and red wine, but you can also educate yourself on many essentials to wine tasting, ranging from beginner to expert. Head vino and CEO, Paul Hoffman, offers a variety of courses and wine education seminars each month. Private tastings can be made by appointment, and Desert Rock Winery is also the perfect place for a company gathering. No matter how big or small the company, we can always cater to your needs!

Desert Rock Wines and Spirits was founded in 2006 by winemaker, Paul J. Hoffman to produce and sell fine wines from Napa and Sonoma, CA. While the timing of a new startup did not coincide with prosperous economic conditions, Hoffman's decades of industry experience pulled the company through allowing it to expand in national and international markets.

Distributed wine brands, 401K and Headbanger, led the charge while the company opened tasting rooms on the famous Sonoma Plaza and historic Treasure Island. The company continued to expand with strategic partners joining the efforts which enabled the launch of Headbanger American Gold Whiskey.

In 2015 the company decided to move all of it's winemaking operations to the thriving Scottsdale, Arizona market. Here, they opened The Desert Rock Urban Winery, Tasting Room, and Wine Education Center. The goal was utilize 14 years of winemaking experience to bring the wine country feel and educational efforts to the nation's fifth largest metropolitan area.

In 2016, the Desert Rock Team plans to expand the Urban Winery concept to other markets and make each one a part of the local community. There will also be three more spirit lines launched in addition to other wines under the umbrella.
