As close as a one-half hour drive from Sierra Vista, to the furthest at a two-hour drive, are nineteen established wineries, with more than a dozen projected to open in the next few years. These wineries are family owned and operated and offer award-winning wines in their tasting rooms. Each winery has its own specialty, such as the Fort Bowie Vineyards which produces “Pecan Delight,” a distinctive sparkling wine with the essence of pecans.
Sierra Vista, world renowned for its bird watchingopportunities and military history, is proud to embrace its role as the heart of the wine country which extends from Portal in the east to Sonoita and Elgin in the west.
