LDV Wine Gallery offers Tuesday night Supper Club

Tuesday is often considered one of the slowest, least productive days of the week, 2 days from the previous weekend and 3 days til the next still climbing the hump to get over the hump that is Wednesday. LDV Wine Gallery is helping to break up the monotony with its monthly Supper Club, the first Tuesday of the month.

5 wineries Part of Scottsdale wine trail

Set among art galleries, boutiques and restaurants, all 5 tasting rooms are all a short walk from each other and include LDV Wine Gallery, Su Vino Winery, Aridus Wine Company, Carlson Creek and Salvatore Vineyards. Guests can taste wines currently available and can purchase bottles to take and drink later.

All tasting rooms are run by the family owned wineries and bring the bottled wine from the wineries in northern and southern Arizona. Su Vino Winery allows customers to make their own wine in addition to the wine Su Vino makes on premise.

Tasting rooms are staffed by knowledgeable staff and family members who will walk you through your tasting as if you are at the winery. If you’re at the right place at the right time you may have your wine poured by one of the owners or wine makers just back from the vineyards or winery to give even more insight to how the wine is made.

“It was time to join forces and encourage residents and visitors alike to embrace our thriving Scottsdale wine scene. With five local tasting rooms, Scottsdale has become a wine tasting destination and the Scottsdale Wine Trail will be another way to enjoy locally produced wines and experience part of our culture,” said LDV Wine Gallery Co-Owner, Peggy Fiandaca.
