Sonoita lies in the rolling, grass-covered hills of southeastern Arizona at the crossroads of US State Routes 82 and 83. Part of Arizona’s original wine country, vineyards and tasting rooms continue to blossom in this small village, with vintages ranging from colorful picnic-style wines to serious award-winning varietals.

  • Sonoita is a lot higher and a lot cooler than Tucson or Phoenix – the nightly low temperature in Phoenix is a little lower than our daily high temperature.
  • This is Arizona’s premier wine country, officially designated by the ATF as an American Viticultural Area, with active wineries for over 40 years, and ranches and farms going back generations to the 1830’s – the area has been farmed for well over 4,000 years.
  • It’s just 45 minutes from Tucson, and the directions to Hops & Vines involve exactly two turns once you’re on I-10: Turn South/Right on scenic Highway 83, go 16 miles, East/Left on 82 (at the stop sign), then go 2 miles and it’s on your left.

Not Just Wine

Although wine is a great reason to visit, Sonoita has some very fine restaurants – some of the best in Arizona. There are also gift shops, artisan studios and other cottage-industry businesses here, ranging from Native American jewelry and rugs, fine apparel, alpacas, cycling, caverns, hiking, and handmade pottery. There are also some amazing local bed-and-breakfasts and ranches.
