Description

A weekend wine getaway -- the Willcox Wine Country Fall Festival & Benefit DinnerOn Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22, 2017, 15 of the state’s top wineries will be returning to pour their award-winning portfolio of wines at the Willcox Wine Country Fall Festival and Benefit Dinner, hosted by the Willcox Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture and the Willcox Wine Country committee.

Rated as one of the best wine festivals in North America by Fodor’s Travel, ideally located among the state’s primary grape-growing region (74% of Arizona wine grape production occurs in Willcox Wine Country), the two-day festival (held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the historic Railroad Avenue Park, 157 N. Railroad Avenue, Willcox, AZ 85643) will feature the following 15 wineries, a pop-up street bistro featuring Tucson-based Dante’s Fire, top music acts hailing from Phoenix and Tucson and over 45 local artists, farmers and other purveyors, including locally grown pistachios, pecans and other specialty foods. Pre-sale tickets are available for $15, which includes a wine glass and six tasting tickets, or $20 which includes a wine glass and 10 tasting tickets.

In addition to the festival, the Willcox Wine Country committee will also be hosting a benefit wine dinner on Saturday evening at 6 p.m. with proceeds benefiting the Northern Cochise Community Hospital. The reception and wine dinner features many of the festival’s participating wineries (for a total of 16-25 wines being featured), entertainment and dinner prepared by Chef Ken Foy of Dante’s Fire. Held at the Willcox Community Center (412 W. Stewart St., Willcox, AZ 85643) just two blocks south of the festival, tickets are $45 per person.
