The beauty of the desert create a perfect backdrop to drink wine.
The sun is setting, the wildlife is winding down, and it’s about time you wine down as well.
The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is throwing its first wine festival, Wine Down with Wildlife, from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 23.
There’s a lot going on at the museum’s first festival. Several local and regional wines of the Southwest are showing up, sweet and savory snacks will be available to munch on, astrophotographer Adam Block will be on site to help you stargaze, enjoy live music, visit with the animals, and even capture the moment at the Hello Gorgeous Photo Booth.
The festival was set up to help support the wildlife many of us have grown to love, and to also celebrate World Wildlife Day.
Tickets range from $20 to $90 — depending on the type of experience you’d like to have.
