The Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds is set in Sonoita and has an active calendar which includes the county fair; a PRCA rodeo; live and simulcast horse racing on the weekend of the Kentucky Derby; and other festivals, activities, and equine events throughout the year. With the edge of Tucson located approximately 40 miles to the northwest of the main intersection, the Sonoita/Elgin area has drawn retired professionals and commuters to the community seeking the relaxed, rural lifestyle not available in the city. Tucson is the second largest city in Arizona and offers easy access to major medical services, the University of Arizona, Tucson International Airport, museums, Davis-Monthan Airbase, shopping, and a variety of entertainment and restaurant options.
Southeastern Arizona is a region steeped in history and western lore – from the famous shootout between the Earps and Cowboys at the OK Corral in Tombstone; to the conflicts with the Apaches, including Cochise and Geronimo, which flowed into the surrounding mountain ranges; to the documented travels of Father Kino as he made his way across the southwest. The area is also rich with natural wonders, including Cochise Stronghold; Texas Canyon; multiple mountain ranges; and Kartchner Caverns, a spectacular living cave.
With a mild climate, the area offers year round opportunities for a variety of outdoor activities including horseback riding, hiking, bicycle riding, motorcycling, and more. The average high temperature in Elgin reaches the low 90’s in June, with mornings in the 60’s. The average low temperature drops to the low 30’s in January, but the afternoons warm to the 50’s and low 60’s. The average rainfall in the area is around 12 to 15 inches, with most of the moisture coming during the monsoon season, typically lasting from early July to mid-September. Morning clouds build to beautiful afternoon/evening storms.
Constructed in 2004, the 4,017 square foot insulated metal building houses the winery, 1,000 square foot tasting room, and a large built-in cool room. Included in the tasting room are a serving/selling bar, a 300 gallon salt-water reef tank set into the wall behind the bar, two handicap-accessible restrooms, and plenty of extra room for sitting and visiting while enjoying a glass of wine. A large porch runs the width of the building in front of the tasting room, providing additional area for seating with beautiful views of the Mustang and Huachuca Mountains. All equipment involved with the growing, harvesting, producing, and marketing of the Rancho Rossa Vineyards wines are included with the purchase of the property. (See list of equipment included in brochure.)
