YC student-crafted wine triumphs at invitation-only Jefferson Cup
Yavapai College students earned top honors studying the art and science of winemaking at the Southwest Wine Center in Clarkdale.
The latest student-crafted wines to be trumpeted: A 2016 Mourvedre and a 2015 Viognier. The Mourvedre earned a coveted “Jefferson Cup” in its category in an invitation-only competition by the same name. The Viognier won a bronze medal in the same competition.
The Jefferson Cup is the top honor – the sweepstakes award – bestowed on just 16 of 750 participating wines in the Kansas City, Mo., invitational competition conducted Nov. 16-17. The competitors from 27 different states were culled from tastings and wine competitions nationwide. The Jefferson Cup was touted in a press release as “the only competition that honors the best of the best among wineries from all of America’s wine regions.”
Doug Frost, a founder and director of the Jefferson Cop Invitational, invited the SWC to participate in the 2017 competition on a swing through the Verde Valley wine region. “I was trying to learn all that was going on in Arizona. I found out about (the SWC) online and was fascinated by what the staff was doing there.”
A master sommelier and a master of wine, Frost said he was confident based on what he had been told and read, that the SWC would compete well at the Jefferson Cup. “I select wines based upon many criteria, but put simply, I am trying to suss out the best wines from around the country that I can.”
The SWC plans to celebrate the Jefferson Cup awards at a forthcoming event. Details will be posted on the SWC website and Facebook pages. For more information about YC’s winemaking programs at the Verde Valley campus in Clarkdale, visit viticulture.yc.edu.

YRMC opens new vein center
People who suffer from circulatory problems in their legs know the condition is painful, debilitating and complicated.
“Circulatory problems are very dangerous and limit how people live and enjoy their lives,” said Anil Kumar, MD, FACCP, RPVI, Medical Director of Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s (YRMC’s) Vein Center.
What causes these circulatory problems? A condition called chronic venous insufficiency is linked to circulatory problems in the legs. “Chronic venous insufficiency is a problem for millions of Americans and is the number one reason why people have hard-to-heal wounds on their lower extremities,” states Dr. Kumar. “YRMC’s new Vein Center is dedicated to addressing vein health and the complicated health problems associated with these vein-related circulatory problems.”
Dr. Kumar is uniquely qualified to lead YRMC’s Vein Center. He is Board Certified in Vascular Medicine and in therapies to improve circulation in the veins. He is also a Diplomate for the Society of Vascular Medicine and a member of the American College of Phlebology, the professional society for physicians who treat vein disorders.
