This is the 8th annual gathering of Arizona’s premiere wineries. Its a celebrate of the end of harvest and to recognize the winners of the Arizona Republic Arizona Wine Awards competition.

This year the premiere Arizona winery festival has moved to the Heritage Square Lath Pavilion. The awards gala will be held at CREATE at the Arizona Science Center. The new venue will have a larger festival area and feature a 4 course winemaker’s dinner featuring a collaboration of 4 of Arizona’s best chefs. Tickets for the dinner are limited.

Below is the dinner menu for November 20th.


The Grand Wine Festival has been expanded to a 2 day event to give you more time to join us and try award winning Arizona wines. The Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort is creating the Grand Wine Bistro to serve gourmet lunches for everyone. Tickets to the tasting and marketplace are available now.

Proceeds from The Grand Wine Festival help the Arizona Wine Growers Association protect Arizona wineries’ legal rights, market Arizona wines on a state and regional level and help with winery and viticulture education for new and existing wineries.

We look forward to seeing you at the festival. Please come out and support your favorite winery! This is your chance to meet and mingle with the winemakers and learn more about Arizona Wine! If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at events@arizonawine.org.
