This Saturday, over 150 people will drive over 26 miles of dirt roads, climbing up the Bradshaw Mountains to attend Wine in the Pines, held in the historic mining town of Crown King. In its sixth year, Wine in the Pines offers guests a variety of wines and microbrews, along with hors d’oeuvres and tempting desserts from The Melting Pot, dancing and live music. Don’t miss out on the cooler weather and beautiful views from The Mill Restaurant’s indoor-outdoor patio, “The Engine Room,” featuring a 3-cylinder diesel engine used to power mining operations along Route 66. Attendees will sample a variety of red, white and blush wines, along with a selection of beers.
Ticket price includes all tastings, souvenir wine glass and entry in door prize drawings. Additional raffle items will be on display and tickets available for purchase throughout the evening. Proceeds from the evening are donated to Child Crisis Center – East Valley, an organization that serves as a safe haven for abused and neglected children who have been removed from their home, as well as a resource for families in crisis and a licensing agency for foster/adoptive parents.
This year, Wine in the Pines will also feature a special live auction item to benefit the Crown King Fire Department. CK Fire Dept was an integral part of the effort to battle the Gladiator Fire in May 2012 and protected hundreds of Crown King homes from destruction.
