An Upscale Sedona Wine Bar
Cress on Oak Creek features the area’s most extensive wine program. Our wine list was hand crafted to emphasize the boutique selections available from across the U.S., as well as more diverse international selections. The list also includes some of the world’s finest Cognacs, Armagnacs, port and dessert wines.
A winner of the Wine Spectator‘s “Award of Excellence” 22 consecutive times, the diversity and quality of our offerings help us stand apart from other Sedona wine bars. Our sommelier and Chef work closely together to create the wine pairing that best accompanies the dishes in our customizable Chef’s Tasting Menu.
The Coravin System
has recently been introduced in the wine cellar which gives our guests access to a vast array of rare and fine wines that were previously only available by the bottle. The Coravin system accesses wine through the cork using a thin, hollow needle, allowing wine to be poured without removing the cork. This innovative design prevents wine from oxidizing, allowing it to continue to age naturally.
As one of the finest Sedona wine bars, we have recently expanded our wine list to include the very best in Arizona varietals. Fast coming on the international radar, Arizona wines are among some of the best found in more prevalent wine regions. We proudly support the burgeoning Verde Valley wine producing region and seek out the best wines from the top wineries in the main Arizona wine regions: Cochise County, Sonoita/Elgin, and the Verde Valley.
We encourage you to learn more about these excellent wines and to visit these wonderful local wineries during your next visit to Sedona. A great resource for planning your wine tour can be found at the Verde Valley Wine Trail website.
