eNewsChannels: Arizona Harvest Festival

TUCSON, Ariz. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: Kief-Joshua Vineyards asks: With Arizona’s temperatures rocking a sweltering 100 plus degrees in the valleys, why not visit the state’s Southern Wine Growing Region and jam out to a cool 85 degrees? Kief-Joshua Vineyards is once again hosting a summer concert series from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Musicians will be singing on the patio every Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.

“This summer we will be featuring several different music genres,” states winemaker and host Kief Manning. “We are really happy with the line up. There will be blues, jazz, rock, country, a Grateful Dead Tribute Band and more.”

Guest who attend the concert are eligible to wine prizes. Each month, the vineyard will hold a raffle for a private educational wine class for 8 people, valued at $200. The fun-filled tasting will focus on Wine Tasting 101, with a special treat of teaching people how to pull aromas out of wine, along with a winery tour.

As an added bonus, Rancho Milagro B & B will be giving away four gift certificates offering one free nights stay with one night purchased, as well as a complimentary continental breakfast.

The more concerts you attend, the better your odds! Chef Stephen will also be here selling sandwiches and other goodies.
