What's it Like to Make Wine in Arizona?
There used to be an Arizona promotional campaign that reminded the rest of the world that the Grand Canyon State is also known for the five "C's": citrus, copper, climate, cotton and cattle. However, many feel it will not be long before we have to add another "C" for chardonnay, only one of the many varietal and wine blends created all across the state.

LaPrad Brings Culinary Excitement to Wine Country
Arizona Daily Star
Greg LaPrad's reputation preceded him months before he opened his much-anticipated restaurant in Sonoita. So it was no surprise when we walked into Overland Trout less than a week after the restaurant officially opened and found the dining room was half-full well after the lunch rush.

Arizona Daily Star
There will be jumping castles for the kids, karaoke for the wannabe singers and displays of local crafters and artists at the Wilhelm Family Vineyards Fourth Annual Patriot Salute Wine Festival this weekend. The event celebrates Kevin and Karyl Wilhelm's wines, but it's also for a good cause. Part of the proceeds from the admission tickets goes to the Tucson-based Climb 4 the Fallen, which plans to dedicate the funds to its Christmas Blessing Program to benefit first responders or military families during the holidays.
Art and Wine Show Wows Greenlee County
Eastern Arizona Courier
Ray West said Chase Creek "can't be what it was," so the next best thing is to make it something new. The first step in reinventing the historic street in Clifton occurred Nov. 2-3, with the Colors of Copper art exhibition at the Galleria Coronado. The show featured work from 13 artists across a wide spectrum of mediums, wine sampling from a trio of Willcox vineyards — Flying Leap, Gallifant Cellars and Zarpara — and a wide array of live musical performances.

101 Bad Business Words — And Why You Should Avoid Them
Today's marketing is littered with important-sounding words that have no real value: seamless, top-notch, world-class, laser-focused, best of breed. Unfortunately, buzzwords can seriously weaken your persuasive messaging and give an impression of insecurity. Not good.
Opinion: Wine Industry Outlook
Wines & Vines
The pressure building on the wine industry is to find profitable and available routes to market. Distributors are almost all full and can only handle the major brands and the largest of the next level of production. This is a function of the success of the wine industry in making better wine and of an increasingly sophisticated customer base who drink wine, beer and spirits depending on the occasion and on their inclination. This is also a function of politics and of the restrictive legal system perpetuated by the wholesalers in combination with the anti-alcohol forces.
Experts Dismiss Prediction of Global Wine Shortage
San Francisco Chronicle
Confusion abounds over a prediction that a wine shortage could be looming. A Morgan Stanley report says worldwide wine demand exceeded supply by nearly 300 million cases in 2012. The study blamed the shortfall, the greatest in 40 years, on bad weather and fewer vineyards, and it added there may not be enough wine in future years. But don't start hoarding your wine, because analysts are seeing it differently.
