Sonoita Vineyards was outstanding! They have gourmet lunch on weekends, and their wines are fabulous!

On a one-afternoon wine tasting tour of the Sonoita/Elgin area, we visited Dos Cabezas Wineworks, Lightning Ridge Cellars, Sonoita Vineyards, and Callaghan Vineyards. While I have visited many wineries and have a fairly good base of comparison, I haven’t visited any others in the Sonoita area and thus can’t compare these to other Sonoita area wineries. Sonoita Vineyards was our... More

This place is in beautiful wine country. We came around 1pm and it was fairly busy but the employees were VERY nice and tried to make you feel like they weren't slammed. My husband and I have never been to a wine tasting before and let me tell you... WE WILL DO THIS AGAIN! We had a blast. We love... More

Great atmosphere and views are amazing. We finally made it after being a bit lost. Its quite a ways off the beaten path of the winners, but just go past village of Elgin (after you check out their great wines of course) and follow signage for a mile or so. Its a lovely place, with lovely people who really go... More

The fantastic trees contrasting with the desert made it a great spot! Tiger the dog was very welcoming and we are looking forward to returning for the grape stomping festival the first weekend of August!

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....

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
