Wilhelm Family Vineyards

The Wilhelm Family Winery and Vineyard is situated on 20 acres in the beautiful area of Sonoita, Arizona. Karyl, Owner & Winemaker, graduated from the U.C. Davis Winemaker’s Certificate Program. It was a tough program, she’ll admit, but she has learned one important thing: people each enjoy different aspects of wine, and regardless of how much experience or science goes into the wine bottle, the bottom line is still: “Do you like it?”

Karyl is thrilled to be a part of the new and innovative opportunities in the growing Arizona wine community. She looks forward to meeting you and sincerely hopes that you’ll soon be part of her loyal family of Wilhelm wine lovers.

Karyl invites to you visit her tasting room located in her “butterscotch castle” on Lower Elgin Rd, in Sonoita/Elgin Arizona.  There you can sample and purchase your favorites from her wide variety of wines:  from her refreshingly crisp Spanish Style Alborino, to her rich reds that include a Tempranillo and a Cabernet blend, to her dessert wines which include a chocolate caramel port.   With the many styles she produces there is a wine for every taste and preference.
