Wine flights are like speed dating: people are introduced, they learn a little, and then they get to sample bold new aromas before dismissing those too reticent, harsh, or leathery for their palates. Enhance the life experience of yourself and a partner with today's deal: for $15, you get a five-wine tasting and appetizer for two (up to a $32.99 value) at Su Vino Winery, an urban outpost of oenophilia in Scottsdale that also happens to be one of Ranking Arizona's top three wine bars.
Su Vino, which means "your wine" in Italian and Spanish and not "I think, today, Professor" in Russian, is an urbane urban wine purveyor that offers delightfully fermented grape juices for sampling in its tasting bar. During your wine flight, you can either defer to the knowledge of your friendly, helpful wine pilot, or you can blaze a trail and pioneer your own experience by choosing five wines from the award-winning selection, including reds, whites, and sweet dessert wines. Try specials such as the Summer Rain with well-known varieties such as pinot noir and chardonnay, available oaked and unoaked. Along with your vine-derived imbibing comes a free appetizer to provide a palate-pleasing snack such as caprice (tomato and mozzarella served with basil, $9.99).
A wine tasting is an excellent venue for a date, a night out with friends, or a celebratory event for a recently paroled college buddy. Raise a glass five times at Su Vino and experience life through the vine-tinted lenses that Thomas Jefferson refused to remove, even at night.
Su Vino Winery
Italian for "your wine," Su Vino doesn't only curate a lineup of award-winning varietals, it also crafts custom wines to suit even the most discerning palates. Inside an eye-catching tasting room, Su Vino Winery pairs glasses and bottles of its vintages with a menu of light appetizers and sensuous desserts. Red wines such as the jam-flavored cabernet sauvignon/merlot blend and peppery zinfandel pour crimson into tasting glasses, whereas white wines—including the tongue-twisting gewürztraminer—immerse taste buds in crisp, off-dry tones. They also open their bottle-lined space to guests interested in hosting a birthday party, bridal shower, or scared-straight event for delinquent grapes.
