From the first vintage in 1991, Callaghan Vineyards has received accolades from the most respected writers/publications in the world: Robert Parker with Decanter, Karen MacNeil, Oz Clarke, Tom Stevenson, the Wall Street Journal, Wine Spectator, and many more.

Located in the rolling oak-dotted hills of southeastern Arizona, at an elevation of 4800 feet, Callaghan Vineyards produces rich, complex red and white wines from its 25 acre vineyard. Mediterranean and Spanish varietals - Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah and Grenache - are the basic building blocks for our red blends, while Viognier and Riesling are blended for our estate white wine.

Come join us, relax and taste our wines. We’re just one hour south of Tucson. Callaghan Vineyard is open to the public Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 11-3pm.

  • We have enjoyed Callaghan wines for over 20 years, they never disappoint! Callaghan’s red blends can compete with more expensive, famous labels. Recently they received high accolades and awards from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine competition.....well deserved! Great people, wonderful wines!
  • Great winery in Elgin, our favorite. The owners are super nice and make a fun experience. Padres and Caitlin’s are among our favorites from Callaghan Vineyards but we like it all. Much more body to many of their wines than other local wineries. Not sure why this is not the #1 places to visit on Trip Advisor. Especially when I saw what #1 was.
  • Disappointing. The tasting room isn't set up well for tastings (seemed to be more concerned with selling stuff), and the staff didn't seem to know much about the wines. Or if they did, they weren't talking. While none of the wines were god-awful bad, none was very good either. Based on other sources, I had expected more. Perhaps it was the luck of the draw and I didn't have their best. Will never know. I won't be back.
  • Great wine.
  • We love tasting Callaghan's award-winning wines. They have been at it since 1991 and Kent Callaghan is truly a brilliant winemaker. Complex, dry, fruity reds, crisp whites, bubbly's and rose's. We're wine club members so we get regular shipments, but we always have a great time visiting their winery and tasting room south of Tucson. A must when you're on the Sonoita-Elgin wine trail. Dog-friendly!
