AJ’s The Art of Wine and Tastes of the Season returns to Scottsdale Arts
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Fall into flavor with AJ’s Fine Foods and Scottsdale Arts on Saturday, Oct. 7 during The Art of Wine and Tastes of the Season.
AJ’s Fine Foods will present the fundraiser for Scottsdale Arts at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts with a VIP hour from noon to 1 p.m. and general admission from 1 to 3 p.m. This annual affair is the perfect opportunity to taste a curated list of wines along with epicurean pairings in an entertaining setting while supporting the arts.
“We are perpetually grateful to AJ’s Fine Foods for their perennial support of the diverse artistic and educational programs we offer through Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA), Scottsdale Public Art, Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation, Canal Convergence and Civic Center LIVE,” said Erin Krivanek, director of development for Scottsdale Arts. “The culinary artistry behind this celebration of the best wines and luxurious pairings is in itself a perfect pairing for the creativity we showcase through our performances, events and exhibitions.”
The event’s tasting list is hand-selected by AJ’s cellar masters and features selections from their Winter Wine Spectacular, Connoisseur Collection and Sparkling Wines for the Season. Between tastings, attendees are invited to partake in a silent auction offering fine wines, elaborate gift baskets, culinary accessories and other items from AJ’s and their partners.
