If you've had the pleasure of experiencing the Sonoran wine region with AZ Winery Tours, then you're aware of their thoughtful curation when it comes to wine tasting.
If you haven't, let me introduce you. AZ Winery Tours is a family-owned business, as they put it, "created to offer [an] enjoyable and elegant way to experience Arizona's premiere wineries. Guests enjoy charming winery tasting rooms and the beauty of picturesque Arizona wine country."
Tours are offered throughout Arizona. Whether you're looking to explore Sonoita, Wilcox, or even Sedona — there's a tour for all.
With this deep network of wine relationships, it's no surprise that this understanding of what it means to showcase Arizona wines seeps into their wine dinners.
If you'd prefer the wine come to you, AZ Winery Tours puts together local wine dinners where they'll typically bring down the winemaker themselves and a chef to highlight the wine and create sumptuous dinner pairings. In the past, they've created dinners and have featured wines from Wilhelm Vineyards, Windmill Winery, Deep Sky, and more!
"We have been to many wine dinner pairings all over the state of Arizona, but none in Tucson featuring local culinary chef's paired to Arizona Wines. Tucson is a gastronomy capital, so it only made sense to provide great food paired to great wines that feature local businesses." - Tina Bommarito of AZ Winery Tours.
All this to say, you've got to check out their next installments of wine dinners. There's even one coming up this Sunday, January 22 at Tohono Chul Garden Bistro, featuring wines from Rune Wines and Edge Catering from Tohon Chul Bistro.
"We started putting the wine dinners together to bring the incredible Southern Arizona Winemakers to Tucson so that we could help bring awareness that they are located only an hour away from Tucson and are producing some amazing wines!" - Tina Bommarito of AZ Winery Tours
