Town Too Tough to Die

Founded in 1877 as a mining camp, Tombstone became one of the most storied towns of the "Wild West." As one of the last frontier boomtowns in the United States, Tombstone prospered between 1880 and 1890, attracting cattle rustlers and outlaws.

Explore Tombstone's surroundings by going to Sonoita (Arizona Hops and Vines, Dos Cabezas WineWorks, &more) and Elgin (Callaghan Vineyards & Rancho Rossa Vineyards).
