FROM BIRDS AND BARRELS
A New Generation of Winemakers
Birds and Barrels Vineyards was founded by Chad and Monica Preston in 2015 with the goal of crafting ultra-premium Arizona wines. Family owned and operated, Birds and Barrels takes pride in every aspect of production from the quality of grapes grown on site to the hand harvesting, pressing and crafting of the wine. In the age of mechanized mass production, quality is often over-looked. Birds and Barrels is turning back the clock by producing only high-quality, hand-crafted wine. Located in beautiful Willcox, Arizona, Birds and Barrels Vineyards is surrounded by majestic mountain vistas and gently rolling hills with grain fields, vineyards and orchards. Come and visit us to enjoy an Arizona wine experience like none other.
