About the Event

AJ’s Fine Foods will present The Art of Wine and Tastes of Summer at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, July 9. This annual affair is the perfect opportunity to discover new wines and enjoy luscious bites in a fun and entertaining setting, all while supporting the arts. Featured tastings of more than 40 exceptional wines, hand-selected by AJ’s cellar masters, will be complemented by gourmet specialties from AJ’s, including chef-prepared sample entrées and desserts. AJ’s Cellar Masters will be on site to provide their expert recommendations for wine and food pairings. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to stock their wine cellars with a 20 percent discount when they order six or more bottles of wine at the event. 

Activities and entertainment include a silent auction offering fine wines, elaborate gift baskets, culinary accessories, and other items from AJ’s and their partners. Two exhibitions curated by Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation will be on display in the Center Space and the ArtReach Space. 

Proceeds from AJ’s The Art of Wine and Tastes of Summer benefit the diverse artistic and educational programs of the nonprofit Scottsdale Arts and its four operating branches: Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA), Scottsdale Public Art, and Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation. 


AJ’s Fine Foods, a division within Bashas’ Family of Stores, was created in 1985 with a mission to bring an upscale gourmet market to the metro Phoenix area. Since then, AJ’s has expanded to 11 locations, including one in Tucson. Each AJ’s provides an unparalleled shopping excursion that delights the senses in a boutique-like atmosphere. The highlight of the AJ’s experience lies not only in the incredible range of unique food items and gourmet products and services available in our markets, but also in the spirit of our culinary experts, who are passionate about food and providing world-class service.  For more information, visit
