L&L's 5th Winter Wine Round-Up with Los Caballeros in Arizona
Los Caballeros Dude Ranch Resort
We will not be taking reservations until details are confirmed and our 2022 guests have first priority. Watch this space and then reserve early as this one sells out every year.
Dust off your cowboy boots for some horseback riding with Wine Club Manager Anjie's dad, Papa Tony Thompson, who will give the VIP treatment to club members who wish to explore 20,000 acres of wild desert on horseback. This trip includes a hay wagon ride to a ranch cookout dinner with music and wine in the shadow of Vulture Peak.
Dine with us at the scenic Golf Club for a 3-course wine-paired dinner at sunset and campfire with s'mores.
Enjoy cowboy music after dinner in the western bar and nature hikes with the resident naturalist. Guests are invited to do their own thing and take in one included activity each day. Choose from a horseback ride, trap shooting, archery, an e-bike tour, or golfing the course's challenging 135 slope rating with a length of 7,014 yards. Their “signature hole” is the 13th. Playing 605 yards from the rust tees, it features numerous elevation changes and a small well protected undulating green. It is consistently rated as one of the most challenging par 5 holes in the state.
Rated by Fodor's Travel as one of the "10 Best All-Inclusive Resorts", named on the Gold List of Hotels & Resorts in Arizona by Condé Nast Travelers as well as Golfweek’s “Top Places To Play”, and regularly one of Golf Advisor's Top 10 courses in the state, four days of wine and friends and time out under the glorious desert stars at the gracious and authentic Rancho de los Caballeros Resort promises to be a great time!
Pricing for the 4-night Winter Wine Down with L&L is still pending but includes taxes and most gratuities, inviting casita accommodations, the daily activity, a select L&L wine served with dinner, wine tastings, and breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Ranch policy is 30 days cancellation notice and the deposit requirement of one night room plus tax ($400). When reservations are open, phone the resort directly at (800) 684-5030 with reservations. Transfers are not included so if you are flying in, fly to Phoenix. Request a transfer suggestion from the Ranch early as Wickenburg is a small town with limited taxi service. If you rent a car, the drive is 1 1/2 to 2 hours from Phoenix. Driving time from the Santa Ynez Valley is around six hours with no traffic past Los Angeles.
Note: With as large as Lucas & Lewellen wine groups tend to be, the ranch is going to have its hands full with our visit! Activities will need to be reserved 2-3 weeks prior. (Spa or jeep tours are not included in this year's package but are available as an add-on.) And wait-listed folks usually are almost always admitted in the weeks prior to the event so if you are on the wait-list, do not make alternative plans!
