Celebrating 30 Years as a Designated Wine Growing Region
Yuma News Now
Just a short distance south of Tucson lies the unexpected. As the Arizona desert fades, beautiful lush grasslands, six stunning mountain ranges, pronghorn antelope and pure blue skies come into view. Not only is Sonoita the setting of the Ponderosa Ranch from TV's "Bonanza," it is also home to 12 Arizona wineries that USA Today once named in the top 10 wine trails in the country. This year, these wineries are celebrating the 30th year of the prestigious designation as Arizona's original and only America Viticulture Area.
