L&L's 6th Winter Wine Round-Up with Los Caballeros in Arizona
Los Caballeros Dude Ranch Resort
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.
Enjoy a 3-course wine-paired dinner at sunset and campfire with s'mores, 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 Dude Ranch & Resort is always a great time!

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 they have transfers available, $250.00 per vehicle, per one-way trip (plus 15% gratuity - pricing subject to change) to and from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. 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 has its hands full with our visit! Golf and spa 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 waitlisted folks are almost always admitted in the last two weeks prior to the event so if you find yourself on the waitlist, do not make alternative plans because we will squeeze you in one way or another!
