Arizona wine, like other areas of the southwest, goes back to the 1600s and Spanish missions. Today the Grand Canyon State is home to three wine regions with two designated AVAS. The grape varieties cultivated in Arizona range from Spanish to French, encompassing a wide range of styles. Most wineries now lean towards the Mediterranean varieties.
