Is N. Arizona the new Napa?

When you think fine wine, what comes to mind?

Napa Valley in California, or maybe somewhere in France. Well, now there’s a growing movement to make high end wines right here in Arizona.

The frontman for the movement is very familiar to many as a leader of a very different kind of group.

Maynard James Keenan is the lead singer of the rock band “Tool”. But there is another side of Keenan that’s 180-degrees different than his rock and roll persona.

Keenan is on a mission to have Northern Arizona recognized as wine country.

FOX 10’s John Hook has more.

“Only On Fox – Extra”

Some wonder whether the movement to make fine wines in the Arizona Desert is catching on?

According to Keenan, Yavapai Community College is now offering courses in viticulture and oenology, which is the science of wine making.

If you would like to know more about Keenan’s winery and tasting room.
