Join us as we kick off the Verde Valley Wine Festival with a dinner on the precipice of Sycamore Canyon, with views of Tuzigoot National Monument and the unmistakable Sedona red rocks.
We'll be serving four courses on the Town of Clarkdale’s view deck, expertly prepared by chef Chris Smith and the culinary team from Merkin Osteria. Each course will be paired with delicious wines from the talented local makers of the Arizona Vignerons Alliance.
Todd Ventura’s Auction crew will entertain, bringing one-of-a-kind items & experiences to the block for your chance to bid. There is no better way to fund the scholarship, advocacy, and promo of quality 100% Arizona grown & produced wines than this event!
