Solid episode in which GV asks Mott for his opinion, and then tells him what he really meant to say. Classic.

    I have been to them all and Callaghan’s is by far the best winery in the state of Arizona. Page Springs makes some very good wine, but the majority of their grapes are still sourced from California. I have never had a bad wine from Callaghan’s and their wines has been served at White House dinners on more than one occassion.

    I purchased a few very nice wines at Page Springs winery last week, but I will not yet consider their wines Arizona wines until all the grapes are grown in their vineyards.

    Gary is correct Arizona is on the move in the wine making world.

    Beer butt or beer can chicken is one of my favorites. A little bit of wood smoke from the grill and this chicken is hard to beat.

    How about a show on Texas wines? I’m from TX so I’m partial but I’m curious to know what you think. Been catching the podcasts for about a year now and I’ve learned a lot, thanks!

    A few months ago I ran some statistical tests comparing climate data (Temperature & Precipitation) from Arizona (Chiricahua, Sonoita, Skull Valley, Canelo,?) with benchmark regions from the rest of the world, and found out there is a pretty high correlation with the Mendoza region in Argentina.
    In fact, it makes some sense since both have a desertic to semi-desertic climate with summer (monsoon) rains.
    Planting Malbec seems a good bet.
