Enjoy a visit to three wineries in the high desert of Sonoita with lunch


THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOM QUOTED FOR AS FEW AS FOUR PASSENGERS. Arizona is home to one of the oldest viticulture regions in the United States, and has produced several Jefferson Cup winners for the past decade! We'll focus on wineries in southern Arizona with up to fifteen tastings and an exquisite lunch afterward. Drinking on an empty stomach is SO much more fun. . . Each winery will have an expert on hand to discuss each varietal in depth. The scenery to and from our destination in the rolling hills of the Elgin wine region 5, 000 feet above sea level is incredible - you'll think you're in the Big Sky country of Montana. John Wayne used to call this area his second home. It's still a favorite haunt of Hollywood stars looking to escape the pressure cooker of Los Angeles. Git' your boots and spurs on partner. Bottoms up!
