Willcox Wine Country Fall Festival will be pouring local wines over two days from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 20 - Sunday, October 21.
Once upon a time, the festival began with just four wineries and a little over 250 attendees — 10 years ago. Now, it's growing every year as it celebrates two seasons out of the year, with more than 5,000 people joining the last festival.
This season, 18 Arizona Wineries, live music, more than 70 local artists, crafts, as well as locally grown pistachios, pecans, other local produce and specialty foods will be there.
The newest activity added to this season's festival is "Cellar Selection Sunday.” It's going to offer special tastings of reserve and library wines from the past and present — directly from their cellars.
Everyone attending the festival will get a commemorative glass, and early bird tickets are $15 for six tastings or $20 for 10 tastings.
If you're dreading the drive up the freeway, take the "Tucson Ride & Taste" bus ride, which includes water, snacks, and a movie on the way back to Tucson.
