Interview: John McLoughlin, Bitter Creek Winery.

I met up with Arizona winemaker John McLoughlin at an all Arizona wine tasting at Whole Foods in North Scottsdale. Hot off the heels of the Judgment of Arizona wine competition the public interest in Arizona wines has increased dramatically. There was hardly enough room to move at this event! In this interview I asked John about the 52 varieties he has planted on his 100 acre vineyard. I also asked him about Zinfandel in Arizona, I had heard that the small tight clusters are not conducive to the humid Arizona summers, but John gave me new information on the matter.
