Chances are, owner and winemaker Joshua Manning will be in the tasting room when you visit. He loves to talk about his wines, which are all environmentally friendly and delicious, especially the Magdalena red blend. During the summer, there's live music on the back patio, and year-round, bites of locally made goat cheese in the fridge. A must-stop when in... More

We headed south on a Wednesday afternoon with no particular agenda in mind. There were only a few wineries open mid week and lucky for us, KJ Vineyards was one of them. We were their last customers of the day yet they did not rush us. I agree with other reviews, the winemaker, Kief Joshua Manning, is very knowledgable and... More

It was a very interesting experience. Learned a lot about how they watch the weather to be able to pick. If it rains it messes with the sugar contents of the grapes.

When you stop by Kief-Joshua you will find not only an attractive, welcoming tasting area but there are always folks there having fun! Kief-Joshua is quickly becoming one of the premier wineries in the Elgin-Sonoita area!

A beautiful place. The tasting room was wonderful. Kief was a great host, we talked about wine and music. Even talked about his furniture making skills. A real pleasure to visit and taste wines. This place should be on your must visit list.

My family has been traveling to Arizona for 11 straight years now and we have visited the wine country the last 6 years. Kief-Joshua Vineyards is our favorite stop. We actually made 2 trips this year from where we were staying in Tucson and both were well worth the 1 hour drive. The wines here are excellent, the atmosphere is... More

Not only did we get to taste some great wines, the tasting room was large enough that we were able to get to know some of the other tasters. We enjoyed of some of the excellent cheese and crackers that they offered. There is an awesome patio that I would have loved to sit on had the wind not been... More

I was very disappointed in my visit. I was there as a wine tasting visit on vacation. We were treated so well by the nearby wineries, and I was looking forward to trying, and buying a couple of his. While it was very busy, I was asking some questions and he was so rude and pugnacious. I'm sure at some... More

We visited Kief-Joshua not once, but twice this past weekend when we were in Sonoita. We loved the wines, especially the Magdalena and the Divino. The omelette station on Sunday morning was a fun addition, too. Dizzy was an excellent greeter, of course. I love that the winemakers are there pouring the tastings, so that I'm able to get some...

My husband and I live in Southern Arizona and are fortunate the Elgin wineries are so close to us. It's a trip we love to make when friends come visit. We usually visit a few of the wineries on these outings, but this one is our favorite and we always stop in here. The wines are very good, the samplings... More
