Winery in Arizona???

Having moved from just outside the California wine country, we were surprised to discover that there are indeed some wineries in Arizona. On Saturday we visited the Granite Creek Vineyards in Chino Valley with friends and were delighted find a bit of the California wine country ambiance only 15 minutes or so from home!

Lonnie and I both felt a bit of a rural Sonoma County vibe as we walked onto the grounds and wandered over to the tasting room- a very small, rustic building with just enough room to stand and hold a wine glass.  There was a band playing outside (sixties and seventies rock, I think), and people were sitting around eating and sipping wine under the trees.  Best of all, photographically speaking, there was a small barn and some outbuildings, wine barrels, and some old farm machinery lying around.  And oh yes- there was a vineyard.  We felt right at home!

I will most likely post more images as the week goes on, but here are a couple detail shots.
