The Verde Valley Wine Festival is Northern Arizona’s foremost wine and culinary festival, and after a 2-year hiatus due to pandemic precautions we are excited to return to a new location in the Verde Valley for festival #5. People will come from around the region and beyond to the City of Cottonwood known as the “Heart of Arizona Wine Country”. It’s also well known for its rich history, small town atmosphere, and an array of sites, outdoor adventures, and fun.
This festival is benefiting the Arizona Vignerons Alliance (AVA) and the Arizona Wine Growers Association (AWGA). We are excited to be working in a collaborative partnership with these two non-profit organizations on this festival.
The Arizona Vignerons Alliance Mission is:
To strive for quality and authenticity in Arizona wine, to explore and refine our regional focus and therefore our identity, to gather and share information with each other to improve our grape growing and winemaking practices across all wine regions of the state, and to promote Arizona wines so they are recognized, respected, and sought-after both domestically and internationally.
The Arizona Wine Growers Association:
Advocates for growth, change, and opportunities to strengthen all aspects of wine growing, making, selling, and drinking.
We share the vision and the passion with both organizations.
