Pillsbury wine company 

Pillsbury Wine Company is the evolution of a Dream-Come-True project by New Zealand Film Director Sam Pillsbury. Growing up in New Zealand, Sam witnessed the phenomenon of growing classical grapes in unusual places. On a camping trip in the mountains in Arizona he thought he could try the same thing here. The location he picked was a high-altitude desert valley in Cochise County, 200 miles southeast of Phoenix. This all came from a desire to get away from mass-produced 'McDonalds' wines and create a distinct flavor.
