Southern AZ Wine CountryThere are two wine growing areas in Southern Arizona, and wineries sprouting up all over the area: the towns of Sonoita-Elgin in Santa Cruz county and Willcox in Cochise County. They are roughly an hour apart. The Sonoita-Elgin wineries are the oldest and closest to Tucson. Most people think of these wineries when talking about winetasting in Southern Arizona. But there is a new crop of Wineries springing up around Willcox. The town of Willcox sports several wine tasting rooms, which have popped up in the past couple of years. Some say the soil around Willcox is better. Must be the cows. You decide. See our page to learn about Wine Tasting Tours offered by Southern Arizona Guide.
