“Wine Down with Wildlife” at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

The beauty of the desert creates a perfect backdrop for sippin' wine.

The sun is setting, the wildlife is winding down, and it’s about time you wine down, too.

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is throwing the second annual “Wine Down with Wildlife” wine festival from 6 – 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 21.

There’s a lot going on at the museum during this year’s festival.

Several local and regional wines of the Southwest are showing up, sweet and savory snacks will be available to munch on, stargaze through a fancy telescope, take a night hike, enjoy live music by Little Cloud, visit with the animals, and even capture the moment at the Hello Gorgeous Photo Booth.

Additional food will be available to purchase from Ironwood Terraces, Phoebe’s Coffee Bar, and local food trucks.

Tickets range from $20 to $105 — depending on the type of experience you’d like to have. If you’re in the mood to get some exercise, each of the Night Hikes are $7 per person.
