April 25th, 2014 – Elgin, AZ

Wine in Arizona?  Who knew?  And it is very good.  We started our long weekend tour of Southeastern Arizona with our friends Larry and Sharon by going to 3 of the wineries on the Sonoita/Elgin Wine Tour.  Here is a description better than anything we could write “Situated in the mile-high rolling grasslands of Southeastern Arizona, surrounded by the Huachuca, Whetstone, and Santa Rita Mountains, is a virtually undiscovered wine-growing region with soil so rich, it rivals that of Burgundy, France. The rows of vineyards that produce award winning red, white, and blush wines interrupt the oak glades and yucca patches native to the area, creating breathtaking views that make this a one-of-a kind wine tasting experience.”   We purchased some wine from Sonoita Vineyards and Callaghan Vineyards to bring home with us.  We also enjoyed a bottle of a sparkling wine call Sparkles Peach from the Sonoita Vineyard with our dinner at the campground.

    You guys are having way too much fun!!! Loved the pictures.
    Did you happen to pass by that good-looking cowboy dude on your way?
    I especially liked that blurb on the chalkboard – that’s what it’s all about!

    Leslie you look so pretty! Glad you two are still enjoying yourselves. I love the pictures of the countryside. The wine country reminds me of when we went through Paso Robbles a few years ago.
