The gentleman behind the counter was full of local history and knowledge. We found out that this is the oldest tasting room in the area, established in 1983. Enjoyed the wines and purchased a couple of bottles.

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.
