Sonoita Overview

Sonoita is a very small town in Arizona, located at the crossroads of US Highways 82 and 83 if you as much as blink you will go right passed it, and I mean it literally. But it is a beautiful countryside elavated at close to 500ft and surrounded by undulating grassy hills. The grasslands are popularly refered to as Cienegas. The highway to Sonoita is very scenic and welcoming.

The boarder patrol are a popular sight as they continually patrol the areas for illegal immigrants from Mexico. For people who are not used it seeing them, they are no different that the local police (You would notice the difference however since their cars are normally huge double cabined vehicles.

To emphasize how small Sonoita is, You must look at the statistics this way: It is served by two Petrol stations (Shell, which is sysnonymous with the Sonoita Mercantile, which for years has been run by the Wystrach family), and most recent the Sonoita Fuel stop. There is only one Bank (National Bank - formerly The Stockmen\'s Bank), a post office, one law firm, no clinic or hospital, one has to go to Patagonia (12 miles away).

The Steak house in Sonoita is probably the one restaurant that has made it popular to Tucsonans and others coming from out of State (you\'ve got to ty the steaks there when you visit). The Calaghan winery: You can visit the Calaghan Vineyard website for more information
