If locally grown produce, fresh-baked bread and grass-fed beef aren’t enough to draw you to the Anthem Farmer’s market, maybe the wine will. Anthem Community Council voted unanimously to allow Del Rio Springs Vineyards to offer wine samples and sell bottled wine at the weekly market. The approval is for one vendor only, as a test, and any discussion of potentially adding beer or bourbon was tabled.
The vineyard is nestled in the Chino Valley north of Prescott, at 4,500 feet. Ample sunshine, cool evening breezes and soil composed of volcanic ash and decomposed granite bring unique qualities to the wines, owner Richard Skladzien told In&Out.
The market reopens for the season Sunday, Oct. 29, according to Arizona Community Farmers Markets. Skladzien and his wife, Maricor, will bring three red wines, two whites and a rosé of Pinot Noir to the market starting Nov. 5.
