“Did you know south eastern AZ has the same soil and climate as Bordeaux, France? Kief-Joshua is just one of many wineries in Elgin and Sonoita, AZ. About an hour away, but always a fun, casual good time! I suggest you pack a picnic basket since there are only a few restaurants around there. ”

“Discover one of the best kept secrets in the world of Fine Wine and Spirits! A half hour drive northeast of Patagonia and onto the high, lonesome plains lie Sonoita & Elgin, AZ. They're home to fifteen high-altitude wineries and vineyards. Of these, Flying Leap Winery & Tasting Room is arguably the best. A sensational experience for every wine loving and wine-curious person, Flying Leap produces World-Class, Championship Wine from every harvest of their very own vineyards of Spanish, French and Italian origin grapes! And on the same property, Flying Leap also distills boutique Spirits for tasting and purchase in their Distillery Tasting Room! Fantastic discovery to share with friends!!”
