Arizona is fast becoming renowned for its delicious dry white and red wines such as Malvasia, Arneis, Viognier Picpoul, Grenache, Syrah, Moverdra and Tannat, plus many more varietals. However, I’m frequently asked to take guests on a sweet wine flight, which in this state is more challenging. Though many wineries and tasting rooms in Northern Arizona might have only 1 sweet wine on the menu, there are a few that offer either a sweet flight or more options. Those include the Art of Wine, Oak Creek Vineyards, Winery 101 and Trident. So, if you are looking for Arizona sweet wines, don’t despair, we’ll make sure you get to try some!
