Surrounded by green grass and the spectacular views of Sedona’s red rocks, the Ninth Annual Sedona Winefest will be held in an all-weather circus-sized tent for all to enjoy.
The Winefest is designed to introduce attendees to a variety of fine wines from 20 Arizona wineries from across the state, including many from the the Verde Valley. The event also includes local cuisine, art, music, a variety of vendors, and free wine education seminars. In addition to tasting opportunities, wine will be for sale by the glass, bottle and case. Parking is free.
Sedona Winefest has become a two-day signature event and is a fall tradition in Sedona, celebrating the burgeoning Arizona wine industry, and has grown to host over 2,500 guests in 2016. “The wine industry in Arizona has not only matured to produce award winning wines, but has experienced robust growth in recent years, to the delight and benefit of many,” said Sandy Moriarty, president of Sedona Fair, Inc., the non-profit organization producing the event.
The Winefest features a selection of delicious and inviting foods to complement the wines. Throughout the tasting area, there are also displays of goods and services from vendors ranging from glass art made from wine bottles to jewelry and wine barrel furniture. There will also be an opportunity to win a wide variety of prizes in a hourly raffle. The Winefest is designed for both experienced and aspiring wine connoisseurs, with wine education seminars offered at no additional cost.
On Sunday only (Sept 24) several pre-war “motor-cars” will be on exhibit including a 1914 Bugatti. These rare collectibles are on display by their owners.
An additional feature for 2017 is a “paint-out” by local artists who will paint outdoors from noon to 2 p.m. Their final art will be for sale upon completion of the best of show judging. This ‘plein-air” type painting has been organized the the Sedona Arts Center which will have their own event on October 14-21, the Plein Air Festival. Learn more at SedonaArtsCenter.com.
