Winery, Vineyard, and Tasting Room in Sonoita
Wilhelm Family Vineyards strives to grow ultra-premium grapes on a unique terroir in the high desert of Sonoita. This Southern Arizona town is Arizona’s original wine country and was the first region federally designated an American Viticultural Area (AVA). This high desert vista, located one hour south of Tucson, is home to our estate vineyard, winery, and tasting room. At 5,000 feet and circled by mountain ranges, Sonoita offers a gorgeous backdrop for wine tasting and the complex soil is perfect for producing our high-quality Spanish varietals grown in La Rioja and Ribera del Duero areas of Spain. Intriguing red French varietals enjoy the unique soil and climate of our Sonoita vineyard, as well.
We offer internationally award-winning reds, whites, rosés, Sangrias, and Port-style dessert wines. From the classic, robust reds to decadent, sweet varieties, you're sure to find a wine to love. In our tasting rooms, we strive to provide welcoming environments where we encourage everyone to try a variety of wines personally chosen for their palate.
Enjoy the luxury of award-winning wines, grown and produced right here in Arizona. Plan a visit to our Sonoita winery to see where the vines thrive and the wine is produced and bottled onsite. There are multiple options for tasting at the winery: the cozy tasting room, the flagstone patio with picnic table seating, and for large venue events, the winery converts to offer seating for large group occasions, such as weddings. Whether you choose a day trip for relaxed tasting or planning your next celebration, you are sure to have a memorable experience.
