The Arizona Wine Growers Association Grand Tasting Festival is pleased to announce the winery lineup for the 11th annual festival, taking place Saturday, November 16th, 2019 at Kierland Commons as part of the Kierland POP: Art in Unexpected Places Festival. The largest local wine festival in the state will showcase over 225 wines from 36 different wineries across Arizona.

The Grand Tasting Festival, now in its eleventh year, has grown into a nationally recognized event that attracts over 5,000 attendees from across the state. Attendees at the festival will enjoy some of the Arizona’s finest wines, live entertainment, a local fine art marketplace, and a selection of food trucks and concessions. Festivalgoers will have the unique opportunity to discuss the wines they are sampling with the vintners onsite.

“This year at the Grand Wine Festival guests will enjoy unmatched access to the largest collection of Arizona wines and we look forward to connecting the winemakers with an exclusive audience of wine lovers,” says Kris Pothier, President of the Arizona Wine Growers Association. “We hope that festival attendees enjoy the taste and aromas of the wines they explore, but also create lasting memories around those wines by sharing them with friends and family, in the gorgeous setting of Kierland Commons.”
