Favorite Wine: Sunset and Takara Rose and Karyls Kreation

I found this winery to be an enjoyable adventure into Arizona Wines. The Tasting Room was a pleasure to be in and the views are breathtaking. I had the pleasure of talking with Karyl the Owner. Her knowlege and understanding what it takes to run a winery is overwhelming. She is talented and if you can pin her down a person to take a sip with.

Favorite Wine: used to be Takara Rose.

We have been repeat customers at Wilhelm for the past two years. We prefer sweeter, lighter wines, so the Takara Rose and Albarino have been favorites of ours. However, after our last experience at Wilhelm, we will NEVER be back. On our last visit, we did our usual wine tasting gig to try some new flavors and some old favorites. We did the wine tasting and walked away with a dozen bottles of wine and a wine club membership! However, when we got home and opened the first bottles, we were really bummed out to discover that the wines did not taste like what we had in the tasting room (or what they've tasted like in the past 2 years). Most notably, the Takara was carbonated! We called Karyl at Wilhelm and she said that a lot of the Takaras had refermented and become chardonnays. She admitted that other customers have already complained about this, and that the Takara's should have been rebranded. She said she would take our remaining 10 bottles of both wines back for a refund. Long story short -- we gave her the case back and she said she'd refund it in a few days. A week later we called her because we hadn't received the refund, and she gave us a 10 minute blast about how she had made a poor business decision in taking the wine back, and how no other vineyard would have done that, etc, but that she was grudgingly still giving us in the a few more days. A few days refund, and a week after that she won't even answer or return our phone calls. And she still has the case of wine that we returned to her. The whole experience was unbelievable. We feel poorly treated, especially as repeat customers. It is unfortunate that Wilhelm will not stand by their product. And it is mind boggling to think of a business owner acting this way.

Favorite Wine: Karyl's Kreation

We had a great time taking a winery tour and tasting their great wines in early March 2011. Karyl is very knowledgeable and a great hostess for the tour and tasting.

Favorite Wine: The Sunset Port

we were here for military training, from Maryland, and I decided to visit Arizona's wine country. While the winery uses grapes from outside the state, for now, they have produces an excellant port. I only wish that they had wine from grapes grown at the winery. The Staff was very knowledgable about the wines and I meet the wine maker. In all an awesome visit. Thank You

Favorite Wine: Sunset

Be sure to visit this off the beaten track little winery. Karyl is a talented wine maker; we've taken to checking in every couple of months. The dessert wines are top notch: a mild sweet Sunrise and a deep rich red Sunset. Quickly becoming one of my favorite wineries.

My visit to the Wilhelm's was extremely pleasant and I would recommend this winery to my friends. I enjoyed tastings at several other wineries in the area, but received the warmest welcome at this winery. Very knowledgeable staff that educates without being demeaning.

Favorite Wine: Kevin's Cuvee

This is a must stop for are wine visitors. The Kevin's Cuvee was my favorite. An earthly but very pleasant finishing tempranillo. The staff was knowledgible and friendly. This is a winery to watch as their other products come to market in the next few months.
