Flying Leap Vineyards buys Canelo Hills

The five-year-old Canelo Hills Vineyard and Winery in Elgin is being sold to Flying Leap Vineyards, which owns a Willcox vineyard.

"The owners of Flying Leap are committed to producing quality wines from Arizona-grown grapes," Canelo Hills Vineyard's outgoing owners wrote on the winery's website and in an email to customers. "The Canelo Hills tasting room will reopen as Flying Leap and become their Sonoita-Elgin base. ... Our last day in the winery is Jan. 26."

Canelo Hills is offering a 15 percent discount on wine purchases until then to customers on its email list.
