If you haven’t made a trip to Arizona’s booming wine country, this is your opportunity to take a tasting tour with a convenient, one-stop location.

Local First Arizona is hosting the inaugural Grapes to Glass benefit event from 1 to 4pm, Saturday, September 12 at Maynards Market & Kitchen.

Village Bakehouse Breads and Alfonso Olive Oil will host an Artisanal Bread Bar and Fiore di Capra’s locally crafted cheese will complete the wine, bread and cheese trifecta.

If you’re feeling adventurous, participate in the grape stomping competition, inspired by the famous I Love Lucy episode. Guests will also get a sneak peak of Maynards’ second edition private label wine, AZ Red Malbec Blend at the festival.
