Hosted by Yavapai College’s Friends of the Southwest Wine Center, Wine and Dine in the Vines is a fundraiser that features Arizona wines in their most delectable setting. More than 35 winemakers, restaurant owners, and local chefs will offer tastings of their favorite dishes and libations in a festival atmosphere of live music, winery tours, animated conversation and the chance to meet and greet Arizona’s top vintners and chefs.
