A Guide to Arizona Wine - The Virgin Atlantic Blog
Ben Winstanley of The Virgin Atlantic Blog on Arizona Wine
"The quiet industry of Arizona’s winemakers is producing increasingly excellent, under the radar wine. In the arid desert a hundred-odd miles south of Phoenix, a climate that doesn’t lend itself to viticulture, crops of Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier and other grape varieties have overcome the elements to produce plump, juicy reds and crisp whites. This is robust wine, blood of the scorched earth it comes from, and perhaps the most under-appreciated product of any American terroir."
