We are doing our annual Wine Country Cruise again on 12 November (Sunday).

Please join us, with you, your significant other, and your exotic car-o-choice.

Meet at 0830 for Breakfast at the Vail Steak House. If you aren’t hungry – we will be leaving at 0930!

From there, we will head down Route 83, stopping in Sonoita for a brief refresher at the corner store.

From there, we plan to traverse the valley, making approximately three stops at wineries of interest. We will have a plan for a lunch in wine country as well. I will follow up in a few days when the route is determined.

I would request the travelers to bring some snacks (cheeses, crackers, vegetables, dip, fruit etc.) to share and the minor supplies needed to serve (small plates, and utensils).

This is always a great trip, and the weather will be beautiful. We plan to meet at the location below at 0930.

We have the route planned. We are leaving from the Vail Steak House at 0930 (scroll down to see the address). From there, we plan to be down at the store in Sonoita (intersection of Highway 83 and Highway 82) about 10:15. We will wait there for 15 minutes for anyone who might decide to come up from Nogales (you know who you are!).

Next, I have arranged a special tour of a facility with some unique racers. We can see the cars, and chit-chat for a little bit, and then the group will head back to Sonoita for lunch at "The Cafe". Lunch will probably be about 12:00.

After lunch we are going to get on the road for the Wine Tastings. Plan is then:

  • Rune Wines - Highway 82 and Upper Elgin Rd.

  • Lightning Ridge Cellars - South of Sonoita on Highway 83

  • Flying Leap Vineyards - Elgin Rd.

    After that, everyone just blasts back home, as a group, or however you need to go. I can promise a lot of great driving. We will have little picnics at each of the stops.

    It should be a fun afternoon. Everyone is welcome to join us, for either lunch and/or driving around. Please let me know if you are planning to attend, so I can get the correct lunch reservations.
