Great winery and delicious wines

This was our favorite winery out of the three that we visited last weekend. The dry red wines were great and we even liked their rose and whites. Staff very helpful.

Went for the Blessing of the Vineyards Festival. The Blessing was inspirational and well received--loved the processional/walk up to the vineyards. The rest was just average; however, we enjoyed the singer very much. As another reviewer noted, the wine tastings are very small as was the food in the pairings--not even a mouthful. We went down the road to another... More

I am so sorry you felt this way. We poured one ounce of wine at each food and wine pair table and you received 6 ounces for the general tasting. That is ten ounces of wine or two glasses of wine per person. We have to control the amount each customer gets according to the AZ Department of Liquor. The... More

The red wines are full bodied and the Sav Blanc is crisp and clean but the surrounding scenery is amazing in the grasslands 1 hour south of Tucson. It is well worth the trip to taste their delicious wines. Take your own picnic basket with cheese, crackers, almonds and grapes to accompany your wine tasting. Be prepared to spend $10... More

I vehemently disagree with the ratings for Sonoita Vineyards. We were told not to bother by a couple of people, but we gave it a shot anyway as we had time to burn before leaving Sonoita. It is off of the beaten path, their tasting fee is higher than other wineries in the region, and I was not impressed with... More

Hello The beautiful thing about wine is everyone has a different pallet I am so sorry you did not find any to your liking here, but the wonderful thing about wine is I am sure you found someones establishment you liked.

Monica was the best. She was very helpful and chose wines that pleased out pallets. There was also a good selection of wine related gifts. Ended up buying three different bottles.

So much fun, and learned a lot about about Arizona Vinyards. Reasonably priced. We took our own vehicle and had a dedicated driver, but there are bus tours available for a cost. Beautiful Arizona country side.

The wines did not match the quality of surrounding vineyards. The staff person had an attitude and the wines tasted rather tart or sour, as stated by several members of our group.
