The gentleman behind the counter was full of local history and knowledge. We found out that this is the oldest tasting room in the area, established in 1983. Enjoyed the wines and purchased a couple of bottles.

Nothing here has changed, In the Author' s humble opinion, this is the best of all the wineries in the region. When visiting the wine country, make sure that Sonoita is at the top of the list.
