This is a rather Spartan place from the outside (although there are two Bocce courts, which are distinctive). Inside though the wines are thoughtfully selected and quite nice. Very knowledgeable staff (perhaps even the owner). Well worth the trip.

My favorite wine of all the places I went. A little down the road from some but worth the trip. Go here and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

This is a great vineyard featuring mostly Italian varietals grown on site. Ann Rancone is a very dedicated vintner and produces very good and fairly priced wines. All the tasting room personnel are friendly and knowledgeable. They also have two bocce courts if you want...More

We stopped first at Lightning Ridge, and it was frankly downhill from there in Elgin-Sonoita. This is a small winery, friendly and not crowded. We were delightfully surprised at how good all of the wines were, from the unique Incanto Rose (sort of an amber...More
