Whether you’re looking for a glass of wine, a full bottle, or even a winery, Northern Arizona has the festival for you.

Clarkdale, Arizona is uncorking its second annual Verde Valley Wine Festival on Saturday, May 13 – Sunday May 14 from 1 – 5 p.m.

The event highlights the community of Clarkdale and the Verde Valley, and offers fine Arizona wineries, breweries, spirits, and restaurants committed to creating homegrown products. While the industry of the town has shifted from copper mining to entertainment, the driving philosophy of hard-work remains in Clarkdale.

In between wine tastings, guests can enjoy lectures, live music from Arizona bands, and art. Local artists from Made in Clarkdale showcasing and selling their art.

One for the Verde and the Verde Valley Wine Consortium will also host a blind wine taste-testing.

The festival is presented by Four Eight Wineworks and the non-profit organization, Made in Clarkdale.
