The owner does a most amazing thing & donates cases of wine his special blend, Angel Wings, to a local Catholic Parish in Sierra Vista, for their Holy Communion. Twice a year they open up the vineyards for the Annual Blessing of the Vines & the Parish Priest comes out for this special weekend. All visitors can partake in the... More

We're spoiled by frequent trips to Napa. Our arizona friends took us on a wine tasting trip. We enjoyed the visit but the wines were our least favorite in AZ. The conversation and our server were just OK as well.

Bicycled into Sonoita Winery with a travel group mid-week in March for a wine-tasting + "food" for lunch. Here's the "true-skinny": Just do it! <grin> . Who would even think AZ could have a winery -- almost in the desert -- that is viable and has drinkable wines. Now, don't go comparing with the finest California, French or Italian vintages.... More

I guess we've always been lucky since this was our third visit and we had the older gentleman, Foster?, and he's full of information and just charming. The wines themselves have really improved in the last 6 years and although we usually drink reds we bought a half dozen whites to fill in our case. When we left my husband... More

My friend loves to do wine tastings, I do not. I'd rather just have a glass of wine (which you can do) and sit and look at the scenery. It was chilly out and they have no comfortable seating, a bunch of plastic chairs and picnic tables. Friend got them to open up the balcony upstairs but not one chair... More

We were surprised at how big this tasting room was. The staff was very knowledgeable. We liked quite a few wines but they did. To ship back easy and we couldn't fit any in our suitcases, they had great wines! Angels wings was fantastic,

We enjoyed our tasting today - lots of good wines and good conversation. I liked that you could choose "dry" or "sweet" and concentrate on those types of wine.

would be our favored winery on our 5-winery Saturday, but we were pleasantly surprised! Great wines, lots to taste, and a great ambience changed our minds! We'll definitely go back on next trip!

Enjoyed 2 hours at this winery with my parents during a weekend visit....we arrived 10 minutes before opening, but they were already 'ready' for us. The staff was so friendly and made our visit enjoyable beyond compare. We had fun looking at all of their 'extras' in their tasting room and sampling the fun noshies they serve to compliment the...
