© Judy Hedding

Looking for a place to enjoy some food with your wine? Yes, the main event at these establishment is usually the wine and wine tasting, but food is also served. I'm sure they'll sell you a few bottles of your favorite, too.

Kazimierz Wine and Whiskey Bar 
From Kazimierz World Wine Bar: "comfortably plush sofas & chairs in vineyard colors, stone walls softened by candlelight; wooden wine casks evoke the feel of a European wine cave; subtle lighting; interesting mix of jazz, latin & world beat music at levels that don't strain conversation!" Recipient of the 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 & 2006 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and the 2003 Wine Spectator Best Of Award of Excellence.

Postino Wine Cafe
Locations in Phoenix, Gilbert and Tempe. The original location in Phoenix opened in 2001. Every day before 5 p.m. they offer a wide selection of wines by the glass for $5 (last updated Feb. 2015). Paninis, salads and the popular cheese and butcher block boards are on the menu to pair with your wine.

Terroir Wine Pub
A wine bar that offers 30 continuously rotated wines by the glass along with beers, cheeses, chocolates, and cigars. Biker friendly, dog friendly. Scottsdale.

A good variety of wine flights from which to choose and, of course, the food to go with them if you'd like. Check the calendar for social events, specials almost every day.
