Make sure to mark your calendars for February 17 because it’ll be wine o’clock!
The Arizona Wine Growers Association is hosting the 10th Annual Off the Vine Arizona Wine Festival on Saturday, February 17. The wine festival will be held at Kallista Park at Medella Vina Ranch (4450 S. Houghton Rd., Tucson) this year with plenty of parking, quick access via the I-10 and much more space.
Off the Vine’s new location will feature local food trucks, live music, local artists and a variety of additional vendors including 25 of Arizona’s first-rate wineries. The new location offers a beautiful array of charming trees and greenery that looks like the real-life Secret Garden.
“As one of our most highly attended festivals, we have outgrown the original location and are looking forward to being at Kallista Park, which still offers amazing views and more space along with the amazing wineries we always have in attendance,” says Kris Pothier, president of the Arizona Wine Growers Association and owner of Chateau Tumbleweed, one of the participating wineries.
The Arizona Wine Growers Association’s goal is to have sustainable growth and production within Arizona-grown wines for authentic products and production. The group allows for Arizona grape growers and winemakers to band together for representation, promotion and education.
Arizona Wine Growers are ready to amaze attendees with this year’s Off the Vine Festival not only with their exclusive tastings from 25 of Arizona’s best wineries and their award-winning wines but also with a variety of Arizona eateries such as Carmella’s Joy, The Sweet Coqui, The Sexy Grilled Cheese Food Truck and many more.
