Arizona Stronghold Vineyards

Setup by Tool frontman - and noted wine lover - Maynard James Keenan alongside Eric Glomski, who is also the winemaker at Page Springs Cellars, the Arizona Stonghold operation was originally setup in 2007 to showcase the potential of Arizona as a wine region. After garnering attention for its juicy, ripe and full flavoured wines drawn from the Arizona high desert, the range has more recently expanded - via the Stronghold label - to incorporate fruit drawn from across North America. Given the background of the makers behind Arizona Stonghold, it is perhaps of little surprise that the outlook favours a vineyard-driven style for the Arizona wines and general easy drinking for the simpler Stronghold wines.
