AZ Wine Lifestyle Magazine Will Return to Print This Fall

AZ Wine Lifestyle magazine, formerly known as Arizona Vines and Wines, will return to print this winter under new ownership. The quarterly magazine, which has been in publication since 2008, and website have been sold to John and Michelle Johnson.

Former owners Josh and Rhonni Moffitt announced late last year that they would stop publishing a print product after their winter 2013 issue. In a publisher's letter Rhonni Moffitt wrote, "The difficult decision was made after assessing the publication's financial sustainability."

The new owners are familiar with the publishing business and were the original publishers of Scottsdale Scene Magazine, Sedona Magazine and Sedona Visitors Guide. John will serve as AZ Wine Lifestyle's publisher, overseeing advertising, editorial, and design while Michelle handles office management, distribution and social media.

Rhonni Moffitt will stay on as a consultant for the new owners during the transition.

The print magazine will return in fall with a special collector's edition. Distribution locations will remain the same.
