Sonoita Vineyards is the oldest running commercial vineyard and winery in the state of Arizona. Founded in 1974 by Dr. Gordon Dutt, from University of Arizona, the winery has stayed in the family since then. Situated in the rolling hills in the Sonoita-Elgin area of Southern Arizona the Winery has produced many award winning wines from southeastern Arizona grapes. The winemaker is currently Lori Dutt Reynolds, Dr. Dutt’s granddaughter, and her husband Robi is the current Vineyard Manager. Between the two of them they have four children they’re raising in and amongst the vines.

Nothing here has changed, In the Author' s humble opinion, this is the best of all the wineries in the region. When visiting the wine country, make sure that Sonoita is at the top of the list.

Really enjoyed our day here for the St Martin New Release Festival. They had 10 local wineries in attendance and 15 tasting tickets were included which I thought was great. Food was available outside which was delicious. Really enjoyed this and would do it again!

The wine is good and the staff were super fun to hang out with. I think this is the oldest winery in the area. A must see on your winery tour.

We enjoyed the wine at Sonoita. The wine tasting is great and the quality has been consistent over the years (I found this winery in 1997). That is knowledgeable and very helpful.
