Arizona Stronghold Vineyards has been recognized this year with more than twenty awards for the label's Tazi, Dala, Nachise and Site Archive wines, yielded from fruit grown in Arizona's high desert.

In November this year, Arizona Stronghold was awarded the great honor of receiving four Gold Medals of American Excellence in addition to five Silver Medals of Merit and one additional nomination at the Jefferson Cup Invitational Wine Competition.

Now in its twelfth year, the esteemed wine competition was founded by Doug Frost and is the only one of its kind, which honors the best of the best amongst wineries from all of America's wine regions. Frost is one of only three individuals in the world to have achieved the titles of Master Sommelier and Master of Wine.

The Arizona label also took home awards this year from the Arizona Republic Wine Competition and the Arizona State Fair.

Co-founder of Arizona Stronghold Vineyards with Maynard James Keenan of the rock band Tool and Director of Winegrowing at Arizona Stronghold and Page Springs Cellars, Eric Glomski said, "It's been quite a ride these past four years working to squeeze every bit of potential we saw from the Arizona landscape into our wines – so it feels great to be recognized for all of that work. We're all very proud of everything that we've been able to accomplish to put Arizona wine on the map.
