It’s been part of our heritage for nearly 90 years here in Southern Arizona, and this show came to you live from these heritage headquarters as we celebrated the story of this desert oasis…the Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort!

Chef Bruce Yim, John Kulikowski, Matt Russell & Jessica Nenadic

Our celebrity co-host was Jessica Nenadic, director of events and development at the Tucson Museum of Art, who shared the latest news from the museum and how art connects with life, food, and beverages. We also checked in with Regan Jasper, vice president of beverage at Fox Restaurant Concepts, who talked about his love of Rose wines and a special Rose Wine Dinner happening at Wildflower.

Barrel-aged Manhattan anyone?

All this talk about spirituous beverages got us pretty thirsty, and the Hacienda’s director of wine and spirits, John Kulikowksi, poured us some barrel-aged Manhattans as we discussed the heritage side of the beverage story. Chef Bruce Yim swung by as well to tell us everything we needed to know about the Heritage Foods Festival at the Hacienda on September 3, a must-not-miss event for foodies across the west!
