This was our second stop on our wine tour, and was the best! All Arizona grapes grown right there with good choices of reds and whites. Loved the reisling and had to buy a bottle . . . who knew I would find such a good white. Beautiful building and setting for the vineyards, and dog friendly. Charlene was a... More

On a recent tour of the Sonoita AVA, Kief-Joshua was our final stop. In this case, we had saved the best for last. With a glass from one of the local wineries you can taste five wines for $5. Although we had a glass we opted to purchase the tasting and get one of their glasses as they were larger... More

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!

again one of the "stops" there are maybe 12-15 wineries but only 3-4 are must stop. We like reds and they have some nice ones. nice looking building too
