The Arizona Wine Growers Association is hosting the annual Off the Vine Arizona Wine Festival at Steam Pump Ranch in Oro Valley from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. on Saturday, February 15.
The Steam Pump Ranch and its iconic 1800’s ranch house is quite the backdrop for more than 25 vineyards and wineries, local fare from a variety of AZ food trucks, live jazz music performed by the Pete Swan Trio and local artisans.
“Off the Vine has quickly become one of our biggest events of the year, and after seeing record-breaking attendance in 2019 we’re expecting an even bigger crowd for 2020,” said Kris Pothier, president of the Arizona Wine Growers Association and owner of Chateau Tumbleweed.
If you're not too familiar with wine and aren't even sure what kind of wine you like, this is a great opportunity to interact with the participating winemakers.
Go ahead and pick their brain about the history of their wine, learn how it's made, and taste what sets it apart.
Tickets are $25 per person and it's free admission for designated drivers and kids.
Steam Pump Ranch is located in Oro Valley at 10901 N. Oracle Rd. More information is available at arizonawine.org. To purchase tickets, visit eventbrite.com.
