The event also includes cuisine from local restaurants, music by local talented musicians, a variety of wine oriented vendors, an inspiring art exhibition by Plein-Aire artists, and wine education seminars.

General admission tickets are available online at SedonaWinefest.com at the early online price of $25 and at the door for $30.00. General admission includes an etched commemorative glass and eight tasting tickets. Additional wine tasting tickets are also available. Online sales end at 5 PM on September 25.

Sedona Winefest has become a two day signature event and fall tradition in Sedona, celebrating the burgeoning Arizona wine industry, and has grown from attendance of 700 in 2009 to over 2,500 guests in 2014. “The wine industry in Arizona has not only matured to produce award winning wines, but has experienced robust growth in recent years, to the delight and benefit of many,” said Sandy Moriarty, president of Sedona Fair, Inc., the non-profit organization producing the event.

The Sedona Winefest has been moved from it traditional location; Sedona Airport to the Sedona Posse Grounds Park. This represents a major change in the event’s profile turning it into a high-profile Sedona event in the heart of the town. Posse Grounds history includes the famous “Sedona Rodeo” of the 50’s and 60’s and the beginning of the infamous “Jazz on the Rocks” festival. This year the winefest will host over twenty wineries from all parts of Arizona who will be showcasing their latest wines. In addition to tastes, attendees will purchase their favorites by the glass, bottle or case. The new venue, Posse Grounds Park will give wine lovers the opportunity to sip wine and listen to music while enjoying vast expanses of the grass lawn of the park. The Sedona Arts Center will be present at the Sedona Winefest too with a variety of “Plein Aire” art on display as well as demonstration of “Plein Aire” water color and oil painting. Red Earth Theater which is also located at Posse Grounds Park will be performing a “wine themed” play on Friday and Saturday evenings, the 25th and 26th of September. Tickets for their play are on sale at RedEarthTheatre.org.

The Winefest features a line up of delicious and inviting foods to complement the wines will be offered from local area restaurants. Throughout the tasting area, there are also displays of goods and services from vendors ranging from corkscrews to glass art made from old wine bottles. There will also be an opportunity to win a wide variety of prizes in a hourly raffle.

The Sedona Winefest weekend is designed for both experienced and aspiring wine connoisseurs, with wine education presentations by experts in the industry, including topics from how wine is made to comparing wine regions and why grapes grown in Arizona produce high quality wines. These seminars are offered at no additional cost.

Attendees are invited to come spend the whole weekend in Sedona and stay at Sedona hotels, resorts or bed and breakfast lodging. Visit Sedona’s Chamber website, VisitSedona.com for information on lodging in Sedona.
