People who own Sedona property know that Arizona is making a bid to become the next big wine-growing region in the US. Wine aficionados who don’t live in Sedona are starting to take notice, too. That’s why the Sedona Winefest is in its 12th year. This year, guests will enjoy two days of sampling local Arizona wines, from Saturday, September 25th to Sunday, September 26th.
For maximum fun, plan to attend the event kick-off party at Sound Bites Grill on Friday, September 24th. Wine tasting begins at 6 p.m. and runs until 8:30. Tickets are $25 per person and includes a Sedona Winefest commemorative wine glass. Try wines from two wineries close to Sedona: Alcantara Vineyards and Caduceus Vineyards. Stick around for dancing and live music with Mother Road Trio from 7 to 10 p.m. The regular menu will be available. Get more details at Sound Bites Grill.
People Who Live in Sedona and Beyond Taste Wines from 28 Wineries
The winefest itself will play host to 28 Arizona wineries, so guests can taste a huge variety of wines. Purchase a bottle or a case of your favorites to take home and make celebrations at your Sedona property extra special. There will also be several food trucks on site, so you’ll be able to try out dishes from local chefs as well. And what’s a festival without cool vendors? Find hand made furniture, freshly brewed coffee, and delicious baked treats. You’ll also find stunning jewelry and artwork for sale. The Sugar Thieves will round out the event with live music both days of the festival. Tickets are $35 when purchased in advance or $40 at the door. Non-drinkers buy a $10 general admission ticket.
This year, out of an abundance of caution because of the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus, attendees must either present proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the event.
