Our Wine Styles
We offer internationally award-winning wines. This includes reds, whites, rosés, Sangrias, and Port-style dessert wines. From traditional, classic dry wines to semi-sweet, to decadent, sweet varieties, you're sure to find a wine to love.
We offer many different varieties of reds each with a different flavor profile due to Sonoita's unique terroir. We have robust Spanish reds such as Tempranillo and Graciano, full-bodied French options such as Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah, complex blends, and much more. Our red selection is quite diverse and we hope you experiment to find your own personal favorite.
If you are looking for a lighter-bodied option, our white wines are the perfect choice. They are crisp, fresh, and refreshing. Several of our whites have subtly sweet notes combined with delicate fruit and floral components you are sure to love. Known as Spain's "seafood whites," these wines are enjoyed chilled alone or with a delicious meal.
Our Rosado is a rosé wine produced in a traditional Spanish style. We follow a longer skin contact protocol to produce richer color and deeper, more complex flavors. Similar in flavor to a full-bodied red Garnacha wine, our Rosado also offers more fruit flavors with luscious spicy notes.
Sangrias are wonderful Spanish punch made from wine and fruit. They are refreshing and delicious. We offer both red and white wine options with everything from vibrant citrus to our unique “Arriba” blend, which features prickly pear, passionfruit, and jalapeño for a bold kick.
Our dessert wines are inspired by the Ports of Portugal and produced in a time-honored, traditional manner. With great care and attention to detail, we offer both red and white Port-style dessert wines, as well as truly decadent, naturally-flavored red and white options such as chocolate caramel, hazelnut butterscotch, orange blossom, white chocolate strawberry, and many more. We believe we might have the most Port-style choices in the nation. Come find your favorite.
As Wilhelms, we have to offer a truly exceptional holiday Glühwein. Known as "Christmas in a cup," our mix is rich with cinnamon, cloves, and other secret Karyl ingredients. We offer the mix separately so both white and red wine drinkers can enjoy our holiday wine. In fact, a non-alcoholic version is tasty with grape juice, as well.
Our founders met in the Air Force and are proud to support all military service. Wilhelm Family Vineyards offers a specially-produced Zinfandel with a custom label featuring the B-17 and donate a portion of each bottle sale to the 390 Bomb Squadron Museum, located at the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, AZ. We offer a "Patriot Salute" line with WWII aviation artwork designed by world-reknowned artist and pilot, Jim Laurier. These are truly unique choices to add to your wine collection while honoring our military troops.
