Arizona Winery Profile: Dribble Creek

Dribble Creek - LIWDribble Creek is the brain-child of winemaker, vineyard owner, and man about town, John McLoughlin. I thought I was the hardest worker in Arizona but this guy puts me to shame. John is also the winemaker for Jerome and Bitter Creek Winery out of Northern Arizona. The four current releases of Dribble Creek wine are all masterful blends. There is the white wine, Ladies in Waiting which is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Vermintino. Ode to Spring is a red blend of 50% Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Purr Maid is a red blend of 50% Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Last but not least we have the Sommelier, which is a red blend of 33% Dolcetto, Zinfandel and Syrah. The whimsical, magical labels for Dribble Creek were painted by the internationally known artist Robert Shields, who is one half of the Emmy winning team of Shields and Yarnell. The grapes for these wines were sourced from John’s 100 acre Dragoon Mountain Vineyard located just south of Willcox. I will be featuring these wines at events this fall and winter. I’m excited about these wines not only from a quality standpoint but also from an affordability one. You can get information about my events by joining my wine tasting group, Hope to see you soon.
