9th Annual Off the Vine Arizona Wine Festival
Returns to Oro Valley on February 18, 2023

30+ Arizona wineries, live music, local art and food trucks featured at annual celebration hosted by the Arizona Wine Growers Association

(ORO VALLEY, Ariz.) – On Saturday, February 18, 2023 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., the 9th Annual Off the Vine Arizona Wine Festival, hosted by the Arizona Wine Growers Association (AWGA) and sponsored by ArizonaWines.com, will be returning to the historic Steam Pump Ranch in Oro Valley, Arizona. Over 30 of Arizona’s finest wineries will be in attendance – double that of previous years – in addition to a variety of local eateries, artists and live music.

“After multiple sell-out years, we were able to work with the Historic Steam Pump Ranch and nearly double our footprint for this year’s festival,” said Kris Pothier, president of the AWGA and owner of Chateau Tumbleweed. “This will not only allow for more attendees, but more wineries, food vendors and ample parking.”

Tickets for the festival go on sale Black Friday, November 25, 2022 with a limited number of general admission tickets available for $25 and VIP tickets for $55 for that day only. Following Black Friday, early bird pricing goes into effect at $30/person for general admission and $70/person for VIP, followed by $40/person the day of the event (if any tickets remain).

“Given the year over year success of the event combined with the extra space available, we are now also adding a VIP option for attendees that will include early admission, a wine tote swag bag, and a parking pass,” said Pothier. “There is also a limited opportunity for guests looking for some seats and shade to reserve a picnic table with an umbrella and seating for eight, which are $250/each and include one VIP ticket.” 

The highlight of the event remains the 30+ wineries in attendance, complemented by local fare from eight local food trucks (more than double the amount of food vendors than years past), live music from the Heather Hardy Trio (10 a.m. – 12 p.m.), Paul Green and Midnight Blue (12:30 – 2:30 p.m.) and Matrix featuring Lexa Raquel (3 – 5 p.m.) and local artisans – all set amongst the historic Steam Pump Ranch and the scenic Catalina Mountains.
