Sonoita Vineyards, Elgin

#2 of 7 in Things to do in Elgin
The oldest commercial vineyard and winery in Arizona, Sonoita Vineyards was started in 1974, opened in 1983 and now includes over 50 acres of vines. Aided by the unique growing conditions of the Sonoita Appellation (AVA – American Viticultural Area), the winery consistently creates award winning wines, including a Cabernet Sauvignon chosen by national wine critics to serve at a Presidential Inauguration Gala. Perched at an elevation of 5,000 feet among rolling grasslands, the vineyard is surrounded on three sides by soaring mountain ranges.

The staff is small making each vintage of wine a one of a kind experience. The small staff does all the production and vine care under the guidance of Lori Reynolds, our Winemaker and granddaughter to our founder Dr. Gordon Dutt and Robi Reynolds, our Vineyard Manager.

Every bottle of wine is hand bottled, labeled and capped in small batches at less than 2,000 bottles per vintage. Our grapes come no further than the Southeastern Arizona Region with the majority of wines being vinted from estate grapes.

  • Hands down the best vineyard we have been to! We have went to a couple down in Sonoita, but this vineyard holds #1 for us. Great atmosphere, easy to get to, beautiful scenery.... The wines are so diverse. Very delicious and clean, we brought two bottles home and will be heading back down there soon to stock up on more. The service was impeccable and we had such a wonderful time. Ginny is an angel. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this place. Enjoy fellow wine connoisseurs.
