I've been wanting to get here for the longest time, but Ahwatukee is a bit of a drive for us - about 45 minutes. This weekend, however, we had an event at Kai that included a night at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass resort, so of course had to stop at Wedge and Bottle on the drive back. Loved it! Friendly owners, wonderful selection, and a perfect place to spend a Sunday afternoon with four other wine, charcuterie, and cheese-loving friends. It's a casual order-at-the-counter spot with a few tables inside and out. They also have sandwiches.
In order: Started with a Scarpetta spumante brut rose (later Left Coast Cellars pinot noir), and then the 6 of us feasted: Charcuterie plate with Olli Norcino salami, Salchichon De Vic Catalonian salami, Angel's duck salami, Smoking Goose sopressata, "Mean Beans" and mustard; Uplands' Rush Creek Reserve (amazing - worth every penny), Bresaola and Sole Gran Queso; Finocchiona; Prosciutto di Parma and Mount Tam. They also gave us a sample of Meadow Creek Dairy Mini-Grayson (no pic) which I bought to take home, along with loads of other treats.
