2010 Arizona Wine Awards: Your Chance to Drink and Vote!
Twenty-two Arizona wines (11 red and 11 white) were submitted by vineyards across the state. Now the folks at Whole Foods are putting it to a public vote to determine the best red and the best white in Arizona.
Sample each of the nominated wines and vote for your favorite from 4-7 p.m. on Saturday, June 12 at the Whole Foods store at 7111 E. Mayo Blvd. in Scottsdale. Cost is $10.

Winemakers and growers will be on-hand to discuss their wines and presumably try to convince you why theirs is a winner (We can just imagine the campaign buttons -- "Vote for Pillsbury: It's not about the dough, boy!" or "I've got a krush on Kokopelli!").
Head over to the new Scottsdale store at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9 for a preview of the awards, with 5 wine samples from among the finalists. Cost is $5. Visit the Whole Foods website to register.
