Owner description: Flying Leap Vineyards & Distillery is a committed team of southern Arizona family farmers, talented winemakers, skilled distillers and passionate merchants of the Arizona Wine Country experience. We grow a vast portfolio of winegrapes on our ranches in southern & southeastern Arizona, and we produce a delicious array of finely-crafted, ultra premium wines and distilled spirits from our harvests. Flying Leap's Elgin facility is a working winery and distillery. All of Flying Leap wines are produced from grapes we grow - we do not purchase fruit from anyone. Accordingly, our wines express the unique terroir of our vineyards and are showpieces of the craft, skills and patience of our winemakers. Our distillery facility is completed and a second tasting room for spirits is now open on weekends, as well as a new outdoor park & recreation area and 132-person entertainment venue. Come visit us in the heart of Arizona Wine Country!

Reviewed September 30, 2013

The tasting room is accommodating: spacious, tables & chairs.

We were allowed to look at their vines. A nice gentleman out back told us about the operation.

“It's no flying leap to stop here!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The new ownership of this winery is moving it forward by leaps and bounds! Some excellent newly bottled wines are here for the tasting. These guys know how to expand and market, and, they are super nice on top of it. They are so willing to share their story with you and educate you about the wine making process. Be sure to stop here!

Used to be Canelo Hills, the changes are fantastic! Visited this past weekend and had a great time with a very knowledgable but chill staff.. Will definitely include on the next trip to Senoita!

“pleasant experience”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My wife and I went to Elgin AZ for a wine tasting Sunday. We went to about 4 or 5 wineries. By far the best one for friendliness, knowledge and just a pleasant experience was Flying Leap Vineyards in Elgin AZ. It was our good fortune to have Mark Beres President serve us and tell us about different wines. We were greeted when we walked in and were not rushed or have glasses and products pushed on us to buy as in other wineries. Suffice is it to say we bought wine from him and not others.
