January 18-20, 2019  26th Annual Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival
Carefree, Arizona
This festival is widely known as “…a Collector’s Paradise, TM” as well as an upscale wine tasting event - second to none! Since 2012, Aridus has become Arizona’s largest custom crush facility. Utilizing the highest-quality red and white grape varietals, Aridus crafts its proprietary label that rivals the deep colors, rich aroma and complex flavors of the finest artisanal wines. AZ Wine Cellars was founded in 1991, on fertile, high-desert land north of Wilcox, Arizona. The owners worked with a seven-generation French wine making family to create their uniquely southwestern wines. Cellar 433’s owner John McLoughlin has over three decades experience from dirt to bottle and his renegade wine-making style has originated a family of wines ranging from the approachable to the esoteric. All are evocative of Arizona’s unique terrain and oblige the wine drinking pleasure of novice and connoisseur, alike. King Frosch’s followers call them “the no-headache" wines. They specialize in all-natural wines with no artificial additives and the lowest sulfite and histamine levels. Schlossadler International has been importing fine wines from family owned vineyards from around the world since 1979. Their vast selection allows attendees to choose from dry to extremely fruity, red to sparkling, with wines from Argentina to New Zealand.
