Tucson residents and visitors alike are invited to sample Arizona wines while helping support Local First Arizona. The inaugural Grapes to Glass event hosts local artists and local wineries from 1:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday, September 12 at Maynards Market & Kitchen. Tickets run $35/person, and include eight samples of wine, a commemorative wine glass, a wine yoke, and an array of snacks, with a portion of the afternoon’s proceeds benefiting Local First Arizona. In addition to hosting Local First Arizona, Maynards has invited Village Bakehouse Breads and Alfonso Olive Oil to host their Artisnal Bread Bar. What would a wine event be without cheese? Fiore di Capra completes the bar with their locally-crafted cheese.

Grapes to Glass promises a relaxed atmosphere of afternoon wine sipping, taking in the local art, and enjoying live music. There will also be an I Love Lucy -inspired grape stomping competition.
