It’s a bit surprising that musician Maynard James Keenan and winemaker Eric Glomski ever crossed paths, but it’s a good thing they did. Along with winemaker Tim White, they’ve created world-class, award-winning wines, and there’s no better place to try them than Arizona Stronghold Tasting Room, says Paula Woolsey, director of sales.

What makes Arizona Stronghold’s wine unique?
We over-deliver on all of our wines, and we take real pride in showing the country that wines from Arizona can be quality-driven. Our mission is to bring the quality and the potentiality of what Arizona has to offer to everybody.

Why is Arizona good for growing grapes?
The state has a variety of terroirs — the French term that means the climate, the dirt and the environment. Arizona has the second-biggest diurnal shift in the world, which means grapes can get hot during the day and cool off dramatically during the night. It’s that struggle, combined with high elevation, rich soil and dry climate, that creates this really interesting flavor.

What’s in the Tasting Room?
At any time, we have close to 20 wines to taste. The Tasting Room carries our flagship wines and also wines called Site Archives — small-run, vineyard-specific, seriously focused wines. Out of those, the most popular are the flagship Tazi, an aromatic white blend, and the Lozen, a rich Bordeaux blend. — Kayla Frost

Arizona Stronghold Tasting Room is located at 1023 N. Main Street in Cottonwood. For more information, call 928-639-2789.
