Our spot at the Sonoita Winery is very nice.
We have a wine/brewery/distillery tour map. Woohoo!
This area has nearly perfect environmental conditions for growing wine so the area has a lot of wineries, breweries, and a few distilleries. Our plan is to tour around the area and try out a few of them. There are so many that we could not visit them all in a single day and that would be very expensive (or at least it could be).
Over the next few hours, we visited several wineries, distilleries, and breweries. Village of Elgin Winery and Distillery has very interesting sense of humor. They were the ones with the "Be a Richard Sign".
Next was the Twisted Union Winery then the Flying Leap Distillery. The server was very helpful in our tasting of several interesting choices. The Lavender-infused herbal liqueur was very different and potent but we decided to buy the Arancello Orange Brandy Liqueur which is very much like Grand Marnier. Then Dark Sky Vineyards which was a bit different as you might expect from the name. After that, we decided it was time for dinner. We stopped at the Copper Brothel Brewery and Restaurant. They have their own sense of humor and have named their beer after ladies of the evening. Shawna had a flight of beer but nothing that she liked enough to take home. Our last stop was at a Meadery. They are pretty rare. The Meading Room serves meads and ciders. One was so good we bought a bottle.
It was a fun day.
