Arizona Stronghold Tasting Room
Friday & Saturday 12-9pm
Arizona Stronghold Vineyards was formed to put Arizona on the Fine Wine Map
Circa 2007 A.D.
Arizona Stronghold Vineyards was formed to put Arizona on the fine wine map. While small bastions of artistry have made a few waves with wine aficionados, Arizona still remains a vinous backwater in the minds of the wine world. Despite this, there is a distinct hunger in Arizona for indigenous wines. The potential to make great wine has always existed in the Southwest, yet the talent and willingness to invest here had yet to fully blossom until recently. We believe the soils and climate at our vineyards stand up to the finest in the world. Growing fine wines in Arizona is all about elevation. There is a perfect “Mediterranean Band” in the mid Arizona elevations between the heat of Phoenix and the cold of Flagstaff. This is where we farm. We also feel strongly that our wines express, first and foremost, Arizona, and secondarily the grapes and hands of the vignerons involved.
Great wine doesn’t have to be expensive; it doesn’t have to be pretentious; and it shouldn’t be hard to find. It just has to be great and it has to be made by people that care. ASV is all about place, people, quality and value. Enjoy a taste of Arizona from the bottle and open your mind to the potential of our stunning landscape.
