The professional, knowledgeable staff at Vintner’s Circle spreads fondness for fermented grapes with hands-on wine classes that teach guests, family, and friends how to bottle wines, distinguish between different varietals, or pair wine with cheese. The shop’s unique winemaking courses take aspiring vintners through the accessible four-step process, which begins with choosing wine juices from a selection of more than 50 internationally sourced varieties. Participants then fill more than two dozen bottles with their own vintage. They can emblazon these bottles with custom-designed labels and corks that only open with fingerprint recognition. Vintner's Circle also stocks a variety of gifts for weddings, holidays, and other special occasions, as well as wine accessories and gifts for wine lovers to enjoy year-round. Wine-education classes, corporate events, and team-building events are also on offer.
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.
Arizona, home to the Sonoran Desert and a college mascot called the Sun Devil, doesn't offer the cool, moist climate typically associated with growing grapes. So it's a testament to the winemaking prowess of Scott, Joan, and their daughter Leah that they're able to create top-notch wines in this arid landscape. They even give a nod to their dry surroundings with the name of their winery, Aridus Wine Company. Here, a 32,000-square-foot winery sits amid 40 acres of grapevines, supplying the trio with the raw materials they need to create house-label wines such as malbec, chardonnay, and syrah. Guests can fill up their glasses by visiting any of the winery's three tasting rooms, or by sticking a spout in a nearby cactus.
