“Really cool spot”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

It has a cool view and is like a different world in the middle of Pinal county. We did a wine tasting which including some tasty wines. They have weddings at this location which looks like an amazing backdrop for the big day. This place has a lot of great views and is such a neat place. You forget where you are when you are there and it isn't just because of the wine.

“Windmill Winery Western Wedding”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

My son and daughter-in law recently had there wedding and reception at the winery. The staff service was exceptional in the planning phase and did a wonderful job in decorating and food preparation. The setting is desert remote with beautiful views of the Az mountains. They loved the setting wedding facilities, dressing rooms, horse carriages, dining and dance facilities were perfect for our planned "Western Wedding". Everyone had a wonderful time and setting .Located about an hour south of Scottsdale AZ but easy to travel to. This place is going to be a "hot" place for weddings and parties in the Phoenix area. The bonfire s'mores were a perfect end to our day.

“Wine, Weddings, Wonderful People, WOW”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

Stopped by for the wine tasting coming back from a trip to the Biosphere 2.
The tasting room was full with wedding guests. Cynthia the winery director was well informed and gave us a fun time tasting several wines. As other stated try the Pomegranate wine.

The setting for a wedding or other special occasion is very unique....excellent photo opportunities, lots of room for guests, several different areas that people can gather and converse.

Stop by and say hello to the owner Harold. A jack of all trades.

“Friendly and welcoming, a unique wedding experience”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

Although Florence is an unexpected destination for a wedding, the windmill winery itself is a gorgeous oasis. The windmill owners are extremely pleasant and welcoming. Czarina (our on-site coordinator) was on-point with every detail. We currently live in Sydney, Australia, and she was kind enough to Skype with us across continents to ensure that every aspect of our wedding would be covered. The Windmill works closely with local vendors and offer many options that make planning from afar a breeze. Caterer, check! DJ, check! Transportation, check!

We were thrilled with the way everything came together and would certainly recommend. Our guests were in awe.
