Who Knew There Was a Winery in Tombstone?

Not just one but we found two…we seem to be able to sniff them out anywhere nowadays!  Actually they are fairly new, both have only been there about 2 years and it has been close to 7 years since our visit there in 2007.

Terry & Jeri, full time RVers, friends and bloggers of Just Wanderin came into the St David RV Resort for a night and we all went into Tombstone for the day.

They went shopping and we went to the first wine tasting at…

334 E Allen Street
Tombstone, AZ  85638
520-457-2399


Kyle was our server that gave us 5 tastes with a free souvenir glass for $10.  They feature Arizona wines that are made from Arizona grown grapes from vineyards located 50 miles east and west of Tombstone.


We tasted a light and airy Pinot Gris, a nice and smooth Red blend with a cranberry tone, a licorice flavored Dolcetto and two different Tempranillo’s, one aged in stainless steel and the other aged in oak.  They all had great flavoring and the only one that we would not have purchased was the Tempranillo that was aged in oak, it was just too pungent for our taste buds.


After that tasting we just walked the streets when we found yet another wine tasting at…

15 North Fourth Street
Tombstone, AZ  85638
520-261-1674


Their wines express the uniqueness of the Cochise County territory and they offered 5 tastes with a free souvenir glass for $10.  There wines are expressions of Arizona’s spirit and influences; Tombstone Wines and Monkey Wines.


We tasted a semi-sweet Red that blends red and white wines that was smooth, a perfectly sweet clear crisp Rain, a blush Madame that had a berry and kiwi fruity flavor with an excellent balance, a red port of Cabernet Sauvignon that was smooth with a slight candied cherry and plum taste, a white port that had a touch of brandy and a very wow effect.  Then we tasted a few of the Monkey Wines, the Playful had a nice scent but not too great taste, the Cheeky is a Sauvignon Blanc that is dry but a nice ending, our favorite was Naughty which is a sweet Moscato Bianco with Apricot, Melon and Honey flavors that is so refreshing.


We tasted some very different types of wines that we really enjoyed, but we still find it hard to pay $20+ for a bottle so we just enjoy the tastings. 

Just as we were finishing we got a text from Terry and Jeri and met them for lunch at

417 E Allen Street
Tombstone, AZ  85638
520-457-3107




It was a fun place with loads of memorabilia everywhere and the servers were dressed in the saloon garment that were worn back in the old western days.



Jerry had The Mother Load, which is a juicy ½ lb Black Angus topped with melted Swiss loaded with sautéed mushrooms with a hint of garlic butter and sprinkled with parmesan cheese that had the perfect combination of ingredients that made the mouth want more. 


I had the Goldie’s Famous Overstuffed Rueben that was served on toasted rye bread that was overstuffed with juicy slow cooked thickly sliced corned beef, kraut, Swiss cheese and Kate’s special sauce that just melted in my mouth.  The sandwich was so stacked with meat I could only eat half of it and the fries were perfectly fried with a great seasoning on them.


Terry and Jeri got right into the atmosphere and dressed the part for a photo.


On our way out of town we stopped at the Boothill Graveyard and took some photos.




We had such a great time and once again it was great to meet up with Terry and Jeri on our travels.

We took so many photos, not only from this visit but we combined them with our photos from our visit in 2007, check them all out our Google + Web Albums.

Same here! We were just there in January and missed the wineries too. We always enjoy Tombstone, though.
