Really enjoyed doing a wine tasting at Aridus! The wines were delicious and they had a good mix with excellent choices. The employees were very experienced and gave great recommendations as well. Definitely looking forward to going again.
Because of the time of the year we were here we were the only guests in the wine tasting room. The host Lisa was very well informed and helpful. She left us to ourselves in case that is what we wanted but when we started asking questions she was more than happy to share information on the wine and when other guests arrived she helped them with places to eat or stop to enjoy. She also shared regarding other tasting locations on the Scottsdale Wine Trial. Who knew?
We also enjoyed a charcuterie board that was perfect for two and made for a delightful wine tasting.
We will return soon.
Very nice tasting room. Charcuterie board is a little expensive for the amount you get. Wine is great and pours are excellent.
Great pours for tastings and the wine is pretty good! Pleasantly surprised! The staff was super nice as well!
Fabulous place for wine tasting. The tasting room is beautiful. The wine is pretty good as well. Will be coming back.
Great place!! Service was knowledgeable and friendly .. beautiful place.
Paulette was an incredibly knowledgeable host. Great experience.
Outstanding host. Provided the opportunity to try a number of different delicious wines.
Would definitely recommend.
Aridus wine tasting is always so much fun! And as a member, it’s an amazing deal. They have some fantastic wines, a truly great selection and variety, and everyone who works there is super friendly and helpful. Thanks for another awesome evening!
Where to start. I really wanted to rate this cozy and neat place a five star. After my third and last visit here I'm force not to ever go back. My first experience was ok. Second visit was a little more disconnected. The beautiful young ladies who were the host for the night/ serving the wine, weren't attentive to my group of young ladies at all. It was like they only chose to assist a table with older mature men. We had to constantly keep asking for help, to the point where I had to go into the back of the establishment looking for them to service us. My group of ladies all noticed the same issue. We discussed the situation and decided to just enjoy the moment and have a good time. My third and last time was even worst. On the third visit I had a reservations for 2 couples. We arrived at 5pm and I requested a cheese and fruit platter during my reservation request, but when I arrived I was told they didn't have any left due to having a large group before us. Ok no problem. An hour later... a group of "white" customers comes in and are seated at a table next to us. They ordered the same platter we reserved and that we were told that they didn't have, but surprisingly they have it for this table of four, YES THEY NOW HAVE IT FOR THEM. I question the staff about it, and of course they gave me some lame excuse. Minutes later we were asked to lower our voices because we were too loud. I paid for my wine and was gone. If you want to experience a staff or a place of business that discriminates against people of color, this is the perfect place to go. Be careful!
The wine wasn’t it bad, but it was odd we couldn’t order a cheeseboard unless we reserved it. There’s no way for anyone to know that initially. Probably won’t come back.
Beautiful quaint experience. Thank you!
Place was amazing. Such a beautiful little spot. I enjoy the 🍷 as well of the charcuterie board. I came here to have a beautiful ladies night out and we really enjoyed ourselves. The only constructive criticism I have is that, they need to work on they customers service, because it's really not the best. This place have so much potential, but without customer services eventually it would not stand. Only negative feedback helps a business reach a higher service level.
Perfect spot for a date night! The wine was fantastic and the charcuterie board was delicious (especially the jam).
The pre-determined white and red wine flights are nice, but I personally prefer a more traditional wine tasting experience; pouring one glass at a time and allowing for some choice by the customer.
The wine tasting was very nice. The only thing I didn’t care for was the payment arrangement. It might have been my fault but I did not get a copy of the bill, email or otherwise.
Nice place to go. Customer service is not there anymore. Paula is good with customers. kiah left awhile back and was excellent as a mgr. The rest are terrible. I'm not sure why or how the owner doesn't know this already.
Really friendly service. No real explanation of the wine except a few lines on a paper about where it was from and type of wine. The wine was not very good. Especially the red wines were similar to each other.
Great cabernet Franc and Rose. Only two parties on site.
Tasting was highly personalized and a bit different format than most wine tastings (in a good way). Wines were good. Recommended.
1st time in, loved the experience, and the wine is amazing!!
Great place to just chill out and employees took the time to explain each wine
Birthday wine tasting.
I can’t rate food because I didn’t have any. I don’t see NA as an option.
The staff made a nice area for a group of 11 ladies to visit and celebrate an important birthday.
It was a very fun experience. On vacation with family, would definitely go again. Very good wines!!
Came down to AZ for an event two days early with nothing planned. Found this place when I searched for wine tasting in the area and was not disappointed. Not only was it super affordable for the wine tasting and the meat and cheese board but the wine was amazing. The hubby and I are complete strangers to wine and want to start understanding them and this place delivered. The staff was friendly and informative. The environment was nice and even with a few different parties present the noise level was nice. I would highly recommend this place in the heart of the cutest little downtown shops.
Our group had a great time at the wine tasting
Amazing as always. Grace and WarChild provided excellent service and the wine and charcuterie board were so good!
Awesome place - if wine inspires you be sure to check this place out!
Heavy pours - 4 pours for $20 was roughly 3 full glasses of wine. Cabernet franc, Petite Verdot, and Fume Blanc were incredible.
Incredible wine, great meat and cheese board, and very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. One of the best spots in town.
Wines were great. Our charcuterie board came late ( after 2nd tasting) although we pre-ordered, but it was delicious. Some more attention and finer touches could be added to improve the business e.g. a better understanding of the wines you are tasting, and some nuts or olives to go along with the tasting. Having been to Napa Valley, Marlborough in New Zealand, Temecula in California, just a suggestion to up the ambiance.
Will go back for sure.
Beautiful place. Lovely owners. This was my first time going wine tasting and it was a great choice. I highly recommend.
The employees are very knowledgeable and down to earth. We really enjoyed the wine that was suggested. I most definitely recommend this place!
Lovely spot. Nice wine. Not enough staff to serve the customers. Also could not accommodate when we asked for a charcuterie board. Would be a nice spot for a date, or girls night. I’ll try it again in a few months, hopefully they’ll have more staff.
We had reservations with a preordered meat and cheese platter. The seating was terrible. A low bench and high top table. We had a stand for our drinks and food. No greeting. Not much information given. Asked for another table with low seating but they gave it to a walk-in 4-some. Plenty of dirty abandoned tables but they never offered them to us and knew we were waiting for one. The wine was tasteless and not very intriguing. I wouldn’t recommend this place. It was our 1st night out in many months due to Covid.
Took my mom and sister here for Mother’s Day. Ambiance was a little off to start as there were some very vocal disgruntled customers standing outside talking about how poor the place is. We checked in for the reservation, were told our charcuterie board would be out in 15 min. Half an hour later we were pretty sure the party that came in after us got our board so I inquired. Guy forgot he had even spoke to me. We liked that we could pick from any of the wines. The pours were pretty uneven. We didn’t know we had to keep our glasses for each wine as we weren’t really given any instructions (and I’ve only done tasting in Europe and Asia). Overall the experience was fairly relaxing but I will check out other wine tastings in the future. I picked this winery because multiple reviews talked about their knowledge but we weren’t given any info on any of the wines which was a bit disappointing.
We had a great time at Aridus Scottsdale tasting room. The pours were generous and the wine options were great! The chaurtuterie boards were beautiful and delicious. Great quality food and lots of variety.
The only criticism I would have is that it seemed like they weren’t prepared for reservations. It was very busy when we got there. The gentleman that signed us in didn’t seem to know where to put a party of 7, even though I had a reservation. I saw that there was a party leaving in the back area away from the lobby, and we were able to grab it. Once we were able to move to the back our experience was fantastic!
