We invite you to come relax and unwind at our beautiful location
Located in the heart of Arizona wine country just 50 miles south of metro Tucson, Flying Leap’s Estate Vineyards, Winery and Distillery facilities are one of the most beautiful wine venues in the southwestern United States. We’ve spared no detail in ensuring that the customer experience at our winery estate is first-class, premium comfort, and wonderfully extraordinary.
We invite you to come relax and unwind at our property, learn about Arizona grape viticulture and winemaking from our team of trained sommeliers, and discover the intricacies of the art of distillation.
All Flying Leap wine is produced primarily from grape vineyards the company owns and operates in the state of Arizona, with some Flying Leap wine produced by way of a collaborative partnership with the Hoffmann & Girotti families with grapes sourced from their Medrano & Lujan De Cuyo vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina.

Flying Leap’s distilling emphasis is on grape-based spirits
Located 50 miles south of metro Tucson, Flying Leap’s winery estate in Elgin features a world-class distillery, barrelhouse, tasting room, and spacious event center in the heart of Arizona’s scenic wine country.
Our distillery began operating in August 2016. As one of Arizona’s largest growers of wine grapes, Flying Leap’s distilling emphasis is on grape-based spirits, including vodka, brandy, grappa, and an assortment of delicious infused liqueurs made from eau-de-vie. Our facility also includes a robust grain spirits production capability.
We operate a large hammermill for the grinding of malts, which are fed into our mash tuns, fermenters, and stills. We produce whiskies of all kinds, including aged bourbon, clear moonshine, rye, and single malt spirits.
Made from the highest quality spices available anywhere!
Arizona Rub is all about adding flavor. Which is why we’re totally focused on perfecting the art of BBQ and making whatever you cook—wherever you cook it—as flavorful as possible. And we do it without adding MSG, wheat gluten, or artificial ingredients. Arizona Rub products are made from the highest quality spices available anywhere, and you always get 100% authentic Southwestern flavor.
While the company was officially started in 2008, formulation of the dry rubs began in 2003 while its founder, “RubMan” Dan was searching for the perfect dry rub for baby back ribs using traditional Southwestern flavors.
