Another stop on our tasting tour of the SW Arizona vineyards. Very nice establishment, but felt like we were intruders. The somilier seemed more interested in his conversation with another employee. He did offer to "allow" us to sample a few, but again it felt like we were putting him out. Too bad as we were planning on purchasing quite... More

Yes, it is true;he lives...If you were ever even a mild Edward Abbey fan, you must come and meet Kief's righthand man (OK, maybe more canine than human) named Hayduke. And while you are there petting Hayduke, may I mention the wine tastings were just excellent. I only wish I could have taken some bottles with me on the plane.... More

We visited using a Groupon. We had an excellent wine tasting paired with delicious cheese. Our host gave us an interesting tour. The tasting room is absolutely lovely, we will go back! We bought several bottles of wine.

Go there and you will meet a remarkable young man named Kief. Take your time relax taste the wines and the story will unfold. Ask questions, and you will... More

Delicious wine and great hosts. Top of the hour was the new puppy!! Adorable. $7 for a tasting if u have a glass. You can take your glass to all the wineries here and get a discounted rate at each winery!! Small knick knack shop to buy assorted wine items and nibblies for that picnic !!

Only tried a couple of samples because I was visiting several vineyards. They were very good. Next time I will make sure to have a designated driver as there were several I would have liked to try. The setting is beautiful. Next visit I may try the Airbnb suite on the property. The lady in the very nice tasting room,... More

We were curious about AZ wines and this is just the place to do some wine tasting and have your questions answered. For $8, you can taste 5 wines of your choice. Very knowledgable winemaker who not only explained the wines but also talked about the general wine region and a little history of that area. Would highly recommend!

Eight of us had a private wine tasting at the winery. Kief ran the tasting of 8 wines, 3 white and 5 red. His explanations of each wine and his stories of wine making made for an unforgettable afternoon. He was also able to talk about the general Elgin/Sonoita wine region and the various grapes being grown. If you are... More

Loved the wines, the atmosphere and the winemaker. This was a definite gem in the middle of nowhere in southern Arizona. My family and I will definitely return with guests. The owners could not have been any more hospitable. They treated us like family. We absolutely enjoyed sitting out picnicking on the patio. The scenery is stunning with the mountains,... More
