Sunday, November 22, is the day to get out and drink some delicious homegrown wines at the Arizona Wine Growers Festival at the Farm.
First of all, do you really need any excuse to go to the Farm at South Mountain? It's one of the prettiest places in the Valley, and feels a millions miles away from the city, even though it's not far off the highway on South 32nd Street.
The afternoon festivities in the pecan grove ($65 a head) will include wine tastings (with dozens of AZ wineries on hand), seminars, live music, and a People's Choice Awards. Then starting at 5 p.m., the Growers Cup Awards Dinner ($125) will combine a four-course dinner from Quiessence with the four winning wines in red, white, rose, and dessert wine categories.
