You couldn’t ask for a more picturesque view as you sip on excellent Sonoita wines and listen to live music by The Band Wanted and Liz and Pete. Arts and crafts vendors will also be onsite since, you know, the holidays are right around the corner.

There will be a food truck on site: Tita! Tita! They’ll be serving up pork, chicken, and cabbage lumpia, chicken thigh and pork shoulder barbecue, and will finish things off with something sweet such as their guava cookie or turon.
