Arizona Winery Named on San Francisco Chronicle Top 100 List
The Arizona Republic
For the second year in a row, an Arizona winery has made the San Francisco Chronicle's list of the top 100 wines of the year. Sand-Reckoner Vineyards cracked the list, released Nov. 30, with its Malvasia Bianca. That grape — not a common variety like Chardonnay or Sauvignon blanc — has been planted in increased numbers through the years in Arizona.
