Arizona wineriesThe history of wine in Arizona dates back to the late 17th century when the first vineyards were planted by Franciscan missionaries.

Today, Arizona's brilliant and growing wine industry boasts dozens of active wineries, fueled by the state's warm days and cool nights.

Most vineyards in Arizona are located in the southeastern portion of the state near Tucson, which is also the location of Arizona's only designated American Viticultural Area -- the Sonoita AVA -- which is becoming famous for their Rhone and Tuscan varietals.

As a result, Arizona wine tourism is booming. For first-time visitors, a special added attraction are the views : stunning desert mountain backdrops for the neat rows of vines thriving in Arizona's fertile valleys.
