Holiday Winemaker Dinner Under the Stars

Have yourself a merry little evening at the Holiday Winemaker Dinner hosted by LDV Winery and Merkin Vineyards as guests usher in the season and dine under the stars. The winemakers have curated a farm-to-table and vines-to-glass experience that celebrates Arizona’s bounty.

Your evening starts with the smooth jazz of Rochelle Romeo while sipping LDV and Merkin award-winning wines paired with appetizers. Take your seat under a starry sky while holiday lights twinkle all around, as the winemakers and Chef Steve Zimmerman present three courses that are expertly matched with a wine from both wineries. The winemakers will discuss the wineries’ sustainability and winemaking philosophies while presenting each of the wines selected for the night.

The evening ends with a live auction of two extraordinary wine experiences from LDV Winery and Merkin Vineyards with all proceeds going to support the Southwest Wine Center. This is a 21+ event. Registration required; space is limited.
