Wine Club of SBR Visits Area Wineries

On Sept. 20, two buses of SaddleBrooke Ranch Wine Club members headed out to visit southern Arizona wineries. Callaghan Vineyards and Deep Sky Vineyards were the destinations, located in the heart of the Elgin/Sonoita Wine Country.

Callaghan Vineyards did an amazing job of introducing the club to their winery, wine making practices, and their varietals. Deep Sky Vineyards had a beautiful venue for tasting groups. Everyone enjoyed boxed lunches prepared by the Ranch House and tasted five varieties of wine. Each tasting included a beautiful souvenir glass to take home.

Sheryl Eilenfeldt and Paul Thomsen, wine education coordinators, did a fantastic job organizing the trip.

A special thank you to Cyndy Pylkka, culinary chairperson, who coordinated the delicious boxed lunches with the Ranch House.

Stay tuned for our Holiday Mixer on Tuesday, Dec. 13.
