Friendly spot with good wines. Was recommended to stop there by another winery. Snacks are offered (at an additional cost). I would definitely like to return to Sonoita region and this winery was probably the best.

Very generous! Love the atmosphere, very warm and inviting! Iwould like to come back in the spring and enjoy the patio seting. The wine list for sampling was delicious!

The first time we visited was a downer experience. It seemed like we were inconveniencing the owner by being there. It was awkward. The atmosphere is great though--fireplace, cool tables, nice bathroom, and fun animals to see (a wallaby!). We purchased a bottle of red. We opened it a few weeks later and it tasted awful!!!! We poured out the... More

We like Kief-Joshua for sure, but found the wines to be about average for their class. The tasting room is, by far, the most decadent, which we did enjoy. But, the wines did not seem any better than their lesser priced neighbors. Kief-Joshua (KJ) does cork some of their wines, which we admit appeals to us despite the lack of... More

This vineyard produces mostly reds, so keep that in mind if you aren't a fan. I found all the wines to be very good, and the staff is so friendly and helpful. The house is gorgeous, and the patio seating offers a wonderful view of the grapes. An added bonus is that this family has several friendly rescue dogs that... More

I've been here 3 times and the staff was always very friendly and helpful. Last time there was a food truck with delicious options. Tasting room/house is absolutely gorgeous! A great time!

Another great Southern Arizona Winery. Again we enjoyed the history of the winery and the different types of wines produced there. It was great to hear about the team work that goes on between the different wineries in the area. They owners have true since of business operations.

We have been traveling to Arizona wine country for years during our vacation from Wisconsin. The cooler climate of this region is a nice break from the heat of Tucson. There our around 10 different wineries in this area and we have visited almost all of them. Kier-Joshua has clearly become our favorite. First of all, the wine is excellent.... More

We have enjoyed K-J wines in the past, but at a recent visit, all of the Reds had the same distinct tartness or sourness. Both in nose, and taste. The Chardonnay had the same underlying flavor. Seems like too much tartaric acid added, or maybe malolactic fermentation did not complete or was stopped too soon. Great winery, with many cool... More
