Callaghan Vineyards has been producing some of the best red wines in Arizona for over ten years. Kent Callaghan is a perfectionist and loves to create interesting blends, all of which are very drinkable upon release or aged to perfection in your wine cellar. Make a point to review all of the awards he has won. Kudos to Callaghan Vineyards!

A beautiful place to sit outside, great variety of wines, friendly people and a super chill vineyard dog make Callaghan Vineyards our favorite place to go wine tasting in Arizona! Although AZ wines do not yet compare to wines from California, France or Chile, Callaghan is definitely on the right path to pursue excellent winemaking. Our favorites were: Lisa's 2014... More

Our Callaghan wine tasting experience was excellent. We had some personal (and award-winning) favorites that we're having shipped home. Highly recommend a stop at Callaghan for those visiting the Sonoita/Elgin, AZ area.

The Sonoita-Elgin area of southern Arizona is rapidly becoming a must see destination due to the quality of the wines being produced by the growing number of wineries in this area known as Arizona’s Island in the Sky. Sonoita Vineyards was the first winery, but Callaghan Vineyard’s, founded in 1990, is simply the best. They produce some incredible reds. For... More

There were four in our group and each of us enjoyed the wines here. Wayne was working on Wednesday and he was friendly, helpful and low-key.

Callaghan Vineyards is one of three tasting rooms very close together on Elgin Road. During a recent visit to the wine region located about 90 minutes south of Tucson we stopped for a taste. Very pleasant surroundings. Tasted several of their current offerings. Purchased three different wines. Worth a stop.

We always wonder who ever thought of developing vineyards in the desert. We have been going to Callaghan Vineyards since they opened and they just keep getting better. This is, without question, the superior vineyard in Arizona and many of their wines are better than California wines. The drive to Sonoita from Tucson is beautiful and Callaghan is a perfect...

We enjoyed our "flight" and determined that the Callaghan wine glasses were the best offered by the wineries in the area. There's not much seating so you do have to stand and maneuver your way through the people. It would be great if there was some food available to enjoy the wonderful wines with. Lisa is a great "wine guide"... More

Definitely suggest stopping at Callaghan Vineyards during your trip to Sonoita. They were quite a pleasant couple and we enjoyed our tasting experience. We were even poured a couple wines off of the tasting menu. Our favorites (the ones that we purchased to take with) were Ann's and Padre's, and they were reasonably priced.

Visited on Valentine's Day with my wife. Despite the larger than average crowd, the owners greeted us warmly and took the time to tailor the tasting to our tastes and preferences. The wine was amazing. Plus for only $10, your tasting includes 5 wines of your choice and a Callaghan glass! I ended up taking bottles to go as well.... More
