What: Sixth Annual Arizona Wine Growers Festival
April 2223 from 11:00am to 5:00pm daily
Kief-Joshua Vineyards, 370 Elgin Road, Elgin, AZ 85611

Great weather + fabulous wine = the perfect excuse to get outta town! Make your way to the ever-beautiful Sonoita for the Sixth Annual Arizona Wine Growers Festival, held at Kief-Joshua Vineyards. You’ll learn about and sample some of Arizona’s world-class wines whilst enjoying live music and food from local vendors. The Chili Appreciation Society (CASI) will host a regional two-day professional chili cook-off where you’ll be the judge. There will be a hot salsa contest as well! You can vote for your favorite chili on Saturday and your favorite salsa on Sunday. Proceeds will benefit the Mountain Empire Rotary Club.

Participating wineries include:

Kief-Joshua Vineyards
Alcantara Winery and Vineyard
Keeling Schaefer Vineyards
Arizona Stronghold
Lightning Ridge Cellars
Page Springs Cellars
Zarpara Vineyard and Winery
Hannah’s Hill
Callaghan Vineyards
Passion Cellars
AZ Hops and Vines
Burning Tree
SuVino Winery
Pillsbury Wines
Village of Elgin Winery
Golden Rule Vineyards
Sonoita Vineyards
Coronado Vineyards
Carlson Creek Vineyard

There is a small dilemma … your ticket entitles you to 10 wine samples and there will be more than 10 wineries. My recommendation? Go both days! Buy your tickets here.
