Kief-Joshua Southeast Arizona Wine Growers Festival, Elgin, Arizona - Sonoita, Arizona Area



We ventured out to Kief-Joshua in Elgin, AZ on the 20th of April 2013 for the Second Annual Southeast Arizona Wine Growers Festival.  Our goal was to sample many Arizona wines without having to shell out a whole bunch of cash.  Mission accomplished.  

Since we pre-purchased tickets to the festival, all we need to do was pick up glasses and get ready to taste some of the best wines Arizona has to offer.

we select only the best wines!

Once we stepped outside of Kief-Joshua onto the patio, we quickly noticed the pleasing sounds of Jeordie adding to the overall awesome ambiance of the this great wine festival.  

Rarely do we get the chance to sample so many great Arizona wines in one location, so our goal was to explore more of the out of area brands.  We had sampled so many of the Sonoita and Elgin Arizona wines, so we wanted to see what the other sides of Arizona had to offer for wines.  However, as we all know, it is hard to turn down good wine, so we ended up sampling more than we intended too.

Starting with Su Vino Winery out of Scottsdale, Arizona, our favorite red was by far Ruby which Kristine noted was sweet and very berry.  Our favorite white offered by Su Vino Winery was Summer Rain which was a very good summer wine; light.  

Kristine was quickly distracted from the wine tasting by the fantastic offerings of Untamed Confections who offered all kinds of organic and natural chocolates in the fantastic varieties.  It was hard to pry ourselves away from their display and refocus on our goal for the day, tasting out of area wines from Arizona.
