Red Mountain Roundup: 11/26/15 – 12/2/15

Happy Thanksgiving!  

Bring your family and friends out to Red Mountain during their Thanksgiving visit and enjoy fabulous winery events and tastings, then take a break and come to our place for a wagon ride and enjoy our bonfire.  See you soon!


Cold and sunny sums up the weather.

Events, Places to Visit:

If a tasting fee for a winery isn’t listed below it’s only because I don’t know what it is, there still may be a tasting fee charged.

Red Mountain Wineries are participating in 2nd Harvest through the end of the month.  Bring a canned food donation and participating wineries will waive your tasting fee!

Also, several wineries are participating in Thanksgiving in Wine Country, you can see some of the event listings here.

Please note that the wineries are closed for Thursday, Thanksgiving Day
