In celebration of the 31th anniversary of Arizona’s original and only American Viticulture Area (AVA), Kief-Joshua Vineyards will be hosting the Third Annual Southeast Arizona Wine Growers Festival, featuring 20 Arizona Wineries in one location, on April 18th and 19th, 2015, from 11 am to 5 pm.

The day will be filled with new wine releases, fabulous winemakers, great wine, food vendors, a professional two-day chili cook-off and live music.

“We are once again bringing together winemakers from all across Arizona,” states winemaker and host Kief Manning. “This year we want to celebrate that on October 26, 1984 the Sonoita/Elgin Wine Growing Region was granted AVA status, making it one of oldest federal government granted viticulture areas in the United States.”

Dragoon Cafe / Wicked Burgers will be serving our freshly prepared foods for both days of this great Wine Fest!
