AJ’s Fine Foods will present its annual Summer Wine Spectacular Tasting Event at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, May 21.
AJ’s Summer Wine Spectacular Tasting Event is the ideal opportunity to discover new wines with friends in a fun, entertaining setting while supporting the arts. The annual celebration features tastings of more than 40 exceptional wines of value, all personally rated and selected by AJ’s cellar masters, who will be available to provide their expert recommendations for wine and food pairings. To complement the wines, AJ’s will be serving gourmet samples and specialties including artisan cheeses and breads, shrimp cocktail, sushi, sweets and more. Guests will enjoy live music and a silent auction offering wines and other items from AJ’s and its partners.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Scottsdale Cultural Council for this highly-anticipated wine tasting event that benefits the arts,” said Jayson Mead, director of operations for AJ’s Fine Foods. “Our entire AJ’s Fine Foods team will share the Valley’s greatest selections of wine that were specially chosen by our Cellar Masters. All of the wines will be at a price point that makes it perfect for building your wine collection without breaking the bank.”
