We did a day trip to Willcox from Tucson. Friends told us to pack a lunch because there were no good restaurants in Willcox. Wrong! This place is a gem and worth the trip just for the food. The wine tasting is just another reason to be there. Teresa was our hostess and server and mistress of ceremonies. The wines were quite good. After tasting six wines, my wife and I bought a bottle of the Cabernet, which goes spectacularly well with chocolate cake, and a bottle of the Syrah which is quite good by itself. We drank it later that evening with leftover Italian food. Our friends bought a bottle of the Syrah and the Chardonnay. But the true highlight of the visit was the small-plate food that Teresa prepares between pouring wine and running the cash register. We ordered the spinach dip and chips (great!), the crab cakes (spectacular!), and the dates stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in jalapeno bacon (addictive!!). Then we ordered another plate of stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates! All the time, we are conversing, joking, and laughing with Teresa and the other winery visitors. This was the most fun, and the best food, we've ever enjoyed at a winery or a restaurant. All told, with food, wine tasting, extra glasses of wine, and four bottles of wine-to-go, the four of us spend around $200. We'll be back!
