Best Spirited Day Trip

Sonoita/Elgin area

Staff Pick

When you're in need of a great escape, but don't have a lot of spare time, hit the road and head down Sonoita way. Just about an hour away from town, you'll find Arizona wine country, where you can visit Domaines Ellam/Elgin Winery, Sonoita Vineyards and Callaghan Vineyards within four miles of each other. (There's also another one, Charron Vineyards, a short six miles off the exit from Interstate 10.) Weekends are the best time to visit, because all the vineyards are open for tastings, for a small fee to scare off freeloaders. You're bound to find something to your liking.
