Sonoita, AZ

The last stop on our wild west adventure through Arizona was to Sonoita / Elgin area. This is, if you can believe it, a wine region! It was about a 70 minute drive from Tucson (we actually passed through it on our was to Bisbee) and we took Aaron's sister wine tasting for her first time. We visited a few wineries...some of which, to our surprise, were wonderful! We could not believe the quality of wine in this area. We visited one winery which was downright awful, but the majority of the wines we tried were beyond decent. They are really doing a good job! It was so pretty too...lots of open spaces, sun bouncing off the mountains. This was the icing on the cake for a surprising exploration of Arizona. I really couldn't believe how much I ended up loving all the places we visited.
