Learn more about Wilhelm Family Vineyards
Wilhelm Family Vineyards strives to grow ultra-premium grapes on a unique terroir in the high desert of Sonoita. This Southern Arizona town is Arizona’s original wine country and was the first region federally designated an American Viticultural Area (AVA). This high desert vista, located one hour south of Tucson, is home to our estate vineyard, winery, and tasting room. At 5,000 feet and circled by mountain ranges, Sonoita offers a gorgeous backdrop for wine tasting and the complex soil is perfect for producing our high-quality Spanish varietals grown in La Rioja and Ribera del Duero areas of Spain. Intriguing red French varietals enjoy the unique soil and climate of our Sonoita vineyard, as well.
You’ll find our Sonoita-Elgin tasting room just one hour south of Tucson in the heart of the Empire Mountain plateau—the beginning of our home, heritage and Arizona’s wine culture. While here, enjoy one of our Spanish varietals (or seasonal wines, like our Gluhwein) while taking in the stunning views of our surrounding mountain landscapes, vast high-desert rolling grasslands and our beautiful estate vineyard.
