We are thrilled to share our newest wine releases with you at a special wine tasting at Lawrence Dunham Vineyards’ winery in Cochise County.
Our winemaker will be signing bottles so make sure you get a bottle or two...or twelve. The R.E.D. blend is named after Curt's dad Robert Erwin Dunham who we lost last year. It is a special bottling for us -- and it's really good, too! Our 2009 Sky Island Grenache and 2009 Grenache will also be available for tasting and sale.  This link takes you to a .pdf of our Wine Tasting Notes for our current releases.

Mark your calendar to join us for the second annual “Grape to Glass Symposium” at Lawrence Dunham Vineyards on Saturday August 27th
from 11:00 a.m. 3:00 p.m.

Learn about the winemaking process
A tour of the winery provides an intimate view of the winemaking process that produces our small lot, hand-crafted wines, followed by a barrel tasting and lunch paired with Lawrence Dunham Vineyards’ wines hosted by Peggy Fiandaca and Curt Dunham, owners/winemaker.

Learn about our philosophy, vineyard management, winemaking techniques, and wines – a full grape to glass experience.
Remember we are at 5,000 foot elevation so it is cooler in August than the Phoenix or Tucson area with a chance of afternoon monsoon rain. Please remember to bring a hat and comfortable walking shoes to walk through the vineyards.
