Arizona wines just aren't there yet. However, sitting on the porch of this tiny vineyard and tasting a few varietals, maybe with a picnic basket, makes for a very pleasant afternoon. They sell some snacks, and a couple of the wines are not bad.

Our first stop today in Arizona wine country. The view was very nice - rolling green hills! The wines were very good, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

We were here last year and had to return. The patio is a very enjoyable place to sit and sample wine while looking out over the vineyard. Of course it's dormant now, but still a nice view. The tasting room was staffed by a friendly...More

This vineyard was recommended to us by a dear friend, but he forgot to tell us about the dodgy dirt track (we'd hired a Chevrolet Camero in LA and it is definitely not happy on dirt tracks!) The location is superb. Some of the wines...More
