This was our second visit to this winery and my wife and I really enjoyed both visits. Even though it had been a very busy day, the owner was very personable and informative. We found his honesty about his wines to also be quite refreshing - he admitted that it had taken them several years to get their dry Moscato to where they wanted it to be after getting some outside help.

My wife and I are not Moscato drinkers at all since we don't like sweet wines, but we really liked the dry Moscato as well as the bold red wines that they produce, especially the Zinfandel. These are some of our favorite wines from the area and they are reasonably priced for the Sonoita/Elgin area. This has become one of our favorite wineries in the area and it is well worth driving a few miles out of the way to get there.

Great wine and the hospitality director Bruna ( a Great Dane) made us feel right at home! The fudge with the port was super fun!

Lightening Ridge was the first stop on our Sonoita adventure this past weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of their wines. In fact, I had to ask incredulously "these grapes were grown here?" Their Montepulciano is outstanding, and we really enjoyed the 100% Cab, too. We'll definitely be back once we run out!

We stopped in this past weekend to this extra-special winery in the Elgin-area. As mentioned, a bit out of the way, but the most intense, fabulous wines. We never visit here without buying several bottles of their finest. The estate offerings change as the winery is comparatively small. This autumn they have an estate bottled Cabernet which is still a bit young, but I will hang on to it for six months, because if it is complex, intense right now, just think?? The dessert wine this year is different from other years as well, try it with a piece of their home-made fudge...a little piece of heaven. The owners are so friendly and so proud of their efforts and their " horse/dog" is the greatest! The setting is beautiful, serene, bucolic. Bring your glass for a discounted wine tasting and if you enjoy your Arizona wines, buy a wine travel card (available at most wineries) for the year and receive a further discount (10-15%) on wine and even some shopping/eating establishments. A class act, through and through.
