Eight of us had a private wine tasting at the winery. Kief ran the tasting of 8 wines, 3 white and 5 red. His explanations of each wine and his stories of wine making made for an unforgettable afternoon. He was also able to talk about the general Elgin/Sonoita wine region and the various grapes being grown. If you are... More

I cannot thank you enough for taking the time out of your day to write such an awesome review. We certainly appreciate it more than you know! Kief is my son and our winemaker. He is such a hard working, kind and knowledgeable man. I am thankful when folks take the time to notice. His last year with a broken... More

Loved the wines, the atmosphere and the winemaker. This was a definite gem in the middle of nowhere in southern Arizona. My family and I will definitely return with guests. The owners could not have been any more hospitable. They treated us like family. We absolutely enjoyed sitting out picnicking on the patio. The scenery is stunning with the mountains,... More

My husband & I had the pleasure of returning to this charming vineyard. As soon as we entered the tasting room I knew that we were set for the day! Some of my personal favorites are the Magdelena & Tempranillo. Delicious!!! Bravo to the winemaker and his family. Top notch wines and spectacular experience yet again. Thank you Kief-Joshua Vineyards.... More

Although, this was a beautiful location to visit, the wines were not mature. Every wine we sampled was acidic and not enjoyable. We will not rule out this location and will visit again

I awarded Kief-Joshua Vineyards two stars, because the winemaker and his employees were extremely nice, but unfortunately this did not make up for the unpleasant taste and smell of the wine: sour and mildewy. I have tasted wine in California, Arizona, and Chile, and this was by far my least favorite wine of all those regions combined. Furthermore, the live... More

Went there 8/14 as a request by my daughter for her birthday outing. The wine tasting was very good, the guy pouring was very knowledgeable and helpful. We went out to see the sheep who graze in the vineyard that keep weeds and grass under control. Would recommend this as a stop if you are in Elgin.

What a wonderful tasting room. We bought several bottles of wine, and some snacks - they had a delicious selection available. Kief was wonderful. Definitely coming back!

While touring southern Az with a French visitor, we stopped here since it was the only winery open at 5pm on a Wednesday in July. For 8 bucks each we got to taste 5 wines and keep the glass. While the owner Kief was a bit cold at first he quickly warmed up as we started chatting. He is full... More

I'm hoping this review is accepted because the Syrah (not Shiraz as I said in the previous review) was excellent. Finally, 6 months after we bought this bottle of wine, we finally drank it and WoW! It was wonderful! Full-bodied, smooth going down with an after-tang that made it all the more delightful with each subsequent sip. Wine-lovers must try... More

They were very helpful and the venue was nice, just what our clients wanted. The weather couldn't have been better. A late afternoon storm came through and cooled things off. The mountain views and vinyards in our brides photos were spectacular. SanTanWeddings
