How the State's Wine Industry Is Blooming
Arizona Public Media
Anne Rancone and Robert Carlson live in different towns, but the two have a lot in common. Both moved to Arizona from California, and both made the move to take on a new career challenge. Rancone and Carlson are wine makers, part of a rapidly growing industry in the state. In the past seven years, the number of wineries in the state has grown from 17 to 93, said Carlson, treasurer of the Arizona Wine Growers Association.
