After years of quietly producing delicious wines, Arizona is finally gaining national notoriety for its efforts. And while the rest of the country is catching on to what we have known all along, it’s the local restaurants that are building a strong foundation of support for our homegrown Arizona vino.
This summer, Southern Rail, 300 W. Camelback Road, will continue to do its part with its AZ Homegrown: Summer Winemaker Series. Tuesdays, during June and July, 18 diners will enjoy an intimate four-course paired dinner with some of the state’s most respected vintners. While savoring the family-style dinner prepared by Chef Justin Beckett and team, attendees will have the opportunity to interact directly with the winemakers from Caduceus Cellars (June 9), Dos Cabezas WineWorks (June 23), Sand-Reckoner Vineyards (July 14) and Callaghan Vineyards (July 28).
All dinners begin at 5:30 p.m. Seating is limited, reservations are required. Cost is $49 per person plus tax and gratuity. To make a reservation, call 602-200-0085.
