Weekends just got a little better thanks to Queen Creek Olive Mill, which is hosting complimentary wine tastings through August, including a visit from Windmill Winery this Saturday.
Starting August 3 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. guests will be able to taste different wines pre-selected for each event.
The wine tastings will run every Saturday with the exception of one tasting that will be held on Sunday, August 25.
The mill also hosts company tours, tastings, Olive Oil 101 classes and live music events throughout the year.
The Olive Mill supports many different boutique wineries that are not able to support a large distribution. About one-third of the wines are directly imported from family growers in Italy and Spain. As well imported wines, the Olive Mill also has local wines for sale.

The complimentary wine tastings have featured many winemakers over the years including Sam Pillsbury and Antonio Sanquineti.
As well as wine tastings, the Olive Mill will host a Summer Sangria Social on August 18 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
During the Summer Sangria Social, the Olive Mill will be giving out three different samples of sangria: white, red and non-alcoholic. Then guests can purchase a glass or carafe of their favorite one.
