what is the Arizona vignerons alliance?

The Arizona Vignerons Alliance (AVA) was formed in early 2016 to help protect the integrity of Arizona wines with the help of winemakers and growers providing consumer education. Through their submission process in the spring, 65 wines from 17 wineries were awarded the AVA certification.
