  • We were back for our 4th or 5th visit in the last year as this is just a “go-to” move of you want to do a short drive to Tucson’s East side for some nice wine tasting in a very relaxed environment...  more »
  • Kat our server was such a treat. She made our Arizona wine tasting adventure very special. We’re looking forward to our next visit
  • This a beautiful, small, family vineyard that touts that it is the oldest in Arizona. It is a very personal, family oriented experience, with the owners living onsite just next to the tasting room as you “share’” their porch for outdoor wine and snacks. The views are amazing, as it is set in the Vail, AZ Santa Rita mountains. We chose the tasting option ($10 for your choice of six wines from the menu) and the Meat & Cheese “picnic basket” for two ($22 box lunch concept with individually packaged cheeses, crackers, bread sticks, olives, chocolate wafer, nuts, and your choice of Boars Head salami or prosciutto). It is a very casual experience with the paper box, paper plates, plastic cutlery, and little packages inside the box that you have to open yourself. The wines are made from grapes grown on property or in partnership with another nearby vineyard. They range from ok to good, and are not bad but not exceptional. Sipping wine as you look out over the amazing view, however, is a lovely way to spend an evening. Bring your Jeep,or be prepared for the bumpy little dirt road that takes you off the highway and back in the mountains. Beautiful but bumpy! We lost a hub cap!
  • Today was our first time at this quaint little 6 acre vinyard. Issac was a great host and very knowledgeable. He informed us of the variety of wines and grapes that they harvest. All staff and including the owner were very hospitable. We cant wait to go back. If you read the other review about loosing a hubcap due to the bumpy road, if speed is reduced, youll be fine .🤣👍 We enjoyed taking our photos and experiencing this event!
  • Closed until further notice. Check their facebook page before going. Absolutely love Charron Vineyards. I've been a couple times and always enjoyed delicious wines, a gorgeous view from their comfortable deck, and great service. They're my favorite vineyard in that area - can't recommend them highly enough. I truly send them my best while they manage a family emergency.
  • This is a delightful Winery very close to Tucson. We have been there several times and have enjoyed each visit. Do not be put off by the dirt road for the last half mile or so of the trip, it is worth the visit. Of the several wineries in the Sonoita, Patagonia, Elgin areas we like this one about the best. The wines they make suit our case and the staff there are very nice. If you like wine and live in the Tucson area I would highly recommend a visit to this Winery.
