When visiting Burrowing Owl Estate Winery, there are so many things to feel good about. The wine is delicious, the scenery is beautiful, the food and service at the Sonora Room restaurant is amazing and the winery uses environmentally and ecologically sustainable practices from top to bottom of their entire organization. From solar technology to the actual Burrowing Owl Conservation project, they care deeply about the environment and their community. Who wouldn’t feel good about purchasing wine from Burrowing Owl?
