is located in the heart of Arizona wine country, just 45 miles south of Tucson, in the Sonoita AVA (American Viticulture Area). Our Elgin property consists of a humble, yet functional, winery building and tasting room situated among the sweeping views of our vines and surrounding mountains. Our beautiful, 6.5-acre estate winery is truly an extraordinary destination for wine lovers seeking a quality, relaxed wine tasting experience in a low-density, quaint and incredibly scenic setting.The Elgin area is one of the most exclusive grape growing areas in the country and is among the very rst winegrowing regions to be granted AVA status by the federal government. It is, at present, the only federally-recognized wine growing region in the state of Arizona. Currently home to the largest concentration of wineries and vineyards in the state, the Sonoita/Elgin winegrowing region is recognized as one of the top ten wine trails in the country by USA Today.

The Estate Vineyard
All of Flying Leap’s wine grapes are hand harvested from the company’s expansive vineyards in Willcox and from its small estate vineyard in Elgin. The estate vines encompass a total planted acreage of 6.5 acres, which were originally planted in 2003 and 2004 by Tim & Joan Mueller, the owners & proprietors of the former Canelo Hills Vineyard & Winery. Flying Leap Vineyards acquired the Canelo Hills property in February 2013.The vineyard is sourced primarily with mature acreage of Tempranillo, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, with experimental plantings of Graciano, Counoise, Viognier and Malvasia Bianca. The estate vineyard’s annual harvest yields enough fruit to produce approximately 500 cases of wine annually.
Flying Leap’s winery is well-equipped with state of the art winemaking tools, xtures and material. It includes a co-located cold room, barrel cellaring, nished goods storage facilities and a large adjacent crush pad. All red wines are aged in genuine oak barrels sourced from France, Hungary and the United States. The white wines are cold-fermented and then aged in both stainless steel tanks and neutral oak barrels, depending on style.
