During this time, it may rain almost daily, though showers are primarily in the late afternoon or evening. Temperatures reach 90 degrees during the summer, as compared to the mid-80s in the winter.

This ten-day culinary fest showcases some 20 international guest chefs who join local chefs in presenting winemaker dinners, cooking classes, and tequila pairings.
