Introducing: Pillsbury Wine Co and SanTan Brewing Co
We want to give the community a chance to get to know our beverage garden sponsors before the Certified Local Fall Festival! Check out their back-stories below, and come out to meet them on Saturday, November 9th!
SanTanBrewing Company A mere 6 years old, SanTan Brewing Company is now recognized number 14 of the top 50 fastest growing craft breweries in the US and number 1 fastest growing in Arizona. They released their flagship brew, the Devils Pale Ale in 2007, and have since expanded their lineup to include several local favorites, specialty seasonal beers, and a weekly small batch Cask Conditioned Ale.
Things are going well for SanTan Brewing Co. They recently cut the ribbon at their new 35,000 square food production facility; again, in the heart of Chandler, AZ. This facility will greatly expand their capacity to produce, ship and sell their products statewide!
But they do much more than beer! Get the full experience by visiting the SanTan Brewing Co. restaurant, at 8 San Marcos Place, which boasts a large menu of exceptional quality American-style craft foods. It is the belief of Brewmater Anthony Caneccia that “Great craft beer and great craft food can be the inspiration for the conversations that change the world!”

Pillsbury Wine Company Sam Pillsbury took a big risk back in 2000, when he purchased and planted his first vineyard, 12 miles outside of Wilcox, AZ. At the time, land was valued at $400 per acre, now it’s $5,000. Though not yet widely recognized as a destination for vineyards, Cochise County is an exceptional region for growing wine grapes due to its dusty, loamy soils, ideal elevation and spot on pH balance!
With exquisite care over the years, Pillsbury Wine Co has been producing some of the state’s strongest contenders in the national wine market! In 2010-11, their 2009 Roan Red scored 90 points and the 2009 Chardonnay scored 88.
