Our Wine grapes are grown on the high Arizona Desert between Bisbee and McNeal, Arizona. Our first planting was in late March 2013 and we now have began to make some wines from these. The grapes we have planted are Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Lemberger, Dornfelder, Chambourcin, Gewürztraminer and Traminete. In addition we have some hybrid Seyval, Vidal Blanc and a new grape Blanc du Bois.
