Took a road trip through the wineries of Southern AZ in 2014 Enjoyed some wonderful vistas and wonderful locales. Just finished the bottle of 2012 Zin from this winery.....AMAZING! I had forgotten that I had purchased it for the deep, dark cherry back fast and the smooth and rich taste on the tongue. With a great pepper crusted steak, followed... More

Hubby and I went to Patagonia Lakestate park with picnic, then to some art galleries in Patagonia, on to Elgin and had a tasting at Kief Joshua. Great wine and bought some, beautiful setting, interesting young man, then north towards to Argentos restaurant off of Sahuarita Road south onto Hougton got there around 4:30 so it was less noisy inside....

This is a great winery in Elgin, AZ. The young winemaker was extremely kind, and had the time to chat with our group even though they were very busy. The wines were exceptional, and I liked the added touch of being able to purchase a cheese and salami board. We're planning on returning soon

We have sampled and bought the wine here over a number of years, but a recent visit with a large group of guests was very disappointing. All of the reds had a very acid smell and taste (nail polish remover was the common agreed upon aroma/taste); is there some contamination in their system or a bad red that is being... More

If you visit one southern Arizona vineyard, thus should be it! Beautiful Tuscan home/tasting room. Kief Manning is passionate about his craft, with years of study, travel and work to arrive at this peak. He was patient and funny as he shared generous pours. His 2011 Sangeovese rivals any Italian red. If you love wine you'll love this spot!

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
