Learn more about Provisioner Wines
In early frontier days, the small town General Store was the social hub and lifeline for the hardy pioneers that settled the American Southwest. These stores, or Provisioners, sold everything from nails to flour, blankets to whiskey. Provisioner Wines capture and share the soul of Arizona in the spirit of the old-time General Store: they support new exploration, they push us into new territory and make this quest we are on a little more honest and enjoyable. All without breaking the bank. Provisioner Wines are “Wine for the People!”
Bonita Springs can be found on the northwestern extremus of the Willcox basin in southeastern Arizona. Planted in 1991 by the Minchella family of Arizona and the Lescombes family of France, Arizona Stronghold had the honor of taking over ownership and management in 2009. Nestled at 4300 feet between the massive flanks of Mount Graham and the rugged Winchester Mountains, Bonita is the coolest of all the sites we work with. The deep soils here are a mix of decomposed granite and valley loams and persistent mistralstyle winds grace the site, cooling the vines while also reducing fungal pressure.
Bonita is planted to the great Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc as well as Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Malvasia, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Muscat. In 2015, we planted ten new acres of Malbec, Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Mourvedre, Malvasia and Cabernet Pfeffer.

There are some things that just have to be noted about a particular place. Things that can't go unnoticed and deserves to be in its own little area on AZbottle. If nothing is listed here it doesn't mean that there was nothing special it's just that it wasn't added yet.
