At an altitude of 5,000 feet, surrounded by the Huachuca, Whetstone and Santa Rita Mountains, the Sonoita/Elgin Wine Trail is a cool escape from September’s heat. This region offers stunning views of the mountains in every direction and summer temperatures that hover in the mid-80’s. We’ll journey through the beautiful rolling grasslands of Southern Arizona, with our first stop for lunch, on self, on the patio of the Sonoita Café—serving fresh salads, sandwiches and burgers. After lunch we’ll head over to the award-winning Flying Leap Winery to explore a flight of 6 wines, included, along with a lovely souvenir glass. Flying Leap’s winery and distillery facility is one of the most beautiful wine venues in the American Southwest—a first-class winery estate. Tasting in Flying Leap’s distillery is optional and on self. Hold onto your wine glass because we’re off to explore more of this scenic region–recognized as one of the top ten wine trails in the nation. We’ll stop by Deep Sky Winery where we’ll enjoy a flight of wine, included at their indoor/outdoor tasting bar, and enjoy their wraparound patio overlooking a wide grassy meadow. Afterwards we’ll explore as much of this amazing region as time allows. This is fantastic tour and we hope that you will join us!
