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.

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.
