Most vineyards in Arizona are located in the southeastern portion of the state south and east of Tucson, which is also the location of Arizona's two designated AVA's (American Viticultural Area), the Sonoita AVA (established 1985) and the Willcox AVA (established 2016). Arizona has enjoyed recent success with wine made from the grape varietals native to Italy and the Rhône valley of southern France.
The wineries, vineyards and cellars are supported by the Arizona Wine Growers Association, a Non-profit NGO representing, educating and promoting the AZ wine industry. AWGA supports the wine industry through promotional events, state awards to the best wines in AZ and industry lobbying efforts at the local, state and national level.
The Southwest Wine Center established in 2009 is part of Yavapai College's Verde Valley Campus. SWC provides education and training for the AZ wine industry through Yavapai College's Viticulture and Enology Program. Students at YC can earn an AA in Viticulture and Enology or Certificates in Viticulture or Enology.
