Arizona wines don’t get nearly the love they should. With new vintners popping up all the time, it’s pretty clear that vineyards can thrive in the Sonoran desert and elsewhere across the state. You can spend a whole week celebrating local wine over at Good Oak (316 E. Congress St.) when the bar presents Arizona Rosé Week.

With a little something to pique the interest of lovers of red and white, rosé exists as a happy middle ground, while being something completely on its own that happens to be perfect for warmer weather. Some, including Good Oak's Luke Anable, would peg them as " really good, fresh, quaffable wine."

Now, with six local wine makers such as Dos Cabezas, Rune and AZ Stronghold, you can navigate the world of rosé in the state through a unique, six-day event that spans from Monday, May 16 to Sunday, May 22. Arizona Rosé Week will also feature rosé flights ($14) and 20-percent off select bottles to go. 

Here's the week's line-up:
