FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The third annual Flagstaff Wine and Food Festival is taking place Saturday, June 9.

It will be held at the Pepsi Amphitheater at Fort Tuthill Park.

Admission is $30 dollars to sample great Arizona and International wines along with cuisine from top Flagstaff area restaurants.

Wine and art lovers get a special treat this year, as internationally known artist Bruce Aiken designs a label for a special wine.

Part the proceeds go to benefit the Museum of Northern Arizona.

Aiken teamed with Dave Williamson of Kind Vines on the project.

Williamson found a great wine, with one problem, a rather unattractive wrapping on its cap.

As it turns out, Aiken had the just the picture that made them most of that wrapping,  "Approaching nankoweap" -- a stunning view from the Colorado River, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

Aiken will be signing the bottles as well, making for a great collectors' item.
