Patriotic Celebration at Granite Creek Vineyards

Even if you couldn't let loose on the Fourth of July, there still are a few chances to celebrate in patriotic fashion. About two hours north -- as in, where it will be a mere 90 degrees this weekend -- at Granite Creek Vineyards in Chino Valley, they're hosting a belated Independence Day celebration with wine, music, and food. Guests will be able to lounge outside while sipping award-winning wines and enjoying a menu that includes pot roast paninis, smoked salmon cakes, roasted chicken salads, and a chocolate terrine. On Saturday, July 6, expect tunes from One Road South and on Sunday, July 7, from Just 4 Mama, a family bluegrass band. Music will be from noon to 4 p.m. and the celebration will last from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Admission costs $10 a person and includes wine tastings. For more information visit the Granite Creek Vineyards website.
