Arizonans get to sample wine

July 27, 2012 by  

The public is invited to a wine tasting event tomorrow, July 28, at Queen Creek Olive Mill in Queen Creek, Arizona, just a short drive down the road from Mesa. This event will begin at 10:00 am and run until 2:00 pm.

Wine aficionados in the area can join various experts out in the groves to learn about the art of making wine and wine tasting. In the grove, there are over 100 distinct hand-chosen wines from which to make a selection, so guests are sure to find something to their taste.

This is a unique tourism experience that is based on agriculture. It takes place on a sustainable farm that produces extra virgin olive oil year after year and is Arizona’s only producer of this product. The grove features more than 16 varieties and has been experimenting with combinations for a decade or more. Its trees are drip irrigated and no pesticides or mold inhibitors are used. Guests at this wine tasting event will be able to shop in the Mill, which is a gourmet marketplace selling olive oils and body and bath products, among other treats. There is also a Mediterranean Bistro on the grounds, with local organic foods.

Brochure printing and flyer printing may have been used to market this tour to the local residents. Admission to this wine session is free and everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, please visit the Queen Creek Olive Mill website’s wine tasting page or call Queen Creek at 480-888-9290.
