We made it to Sonoita Vineyards right before their closing time, but the staff was very accommodating and didn't rush us through our tasting at all. The wines were good, and the setting was extraordinary. I wouldn't hesitate to return here.

Of the three wineries we visited in the Sonoita AVA this one definitely has the best vista. Wine tasting room nicely laid out and a good variety of wine and other merchandise. I am sure you will read reviews by others that are positive on the wines tasted. Personally, I was disappointed. Personal opinion, sorry.

We throughly enjoyed our visit for three reasons. one) Lori, the vineyard manager is a delight. She is extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and provided us with many helpful ideas so that we would enjoy our stay. two) As the oldest of the wineries, the history of the is vineyard makes for a wonderful visit. Three) On Saturdays, one can enjoy... More

Decent wines from this place. It has a few very good reds including cab sav. Enjoyed the trip. Only issue is we had dogs that stayed in the car. The winery has several dogs including one that just kept jumping up on the car door. Looks like when we return to Canada will need the Toyota dealership to buff out... More

I am so happy you enjoyed our wines when you visited. We have all rescue animals on the property and I am sorry one of our dogs jumped on your vehicle. I am sure it is our deaf border collie that did the deed he likes to play with other dogs. We now kennel all the rescue dogs up so... More

Sonoita Vineyards is the brainchild of Dr. Gordon Dutt, a retired University of Arizona soil scientist. Blessing of the Vines occurs in April. As you stroll through the vineyard, the blessing is performed by a Catholic priest and a Lutheran minister, with whom Dr. Dutt has long-stanging friendships. "Angel Wings" is the communion wine served at Dove of Peace Lutheran... More

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!
