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!
Always a lovely time! The wines are great, the service friendly, the meat & cheese platter was excellent. We had a wonderful afternoon at Aridus
Everything was perfect. Thank you for your great service and welcoming environment!
We loved their wine way more than we thought we would. The ambiance was cozy and lovely, the meat and cheese tray was amazing, service was great and wine was, well, we bought many bottles to take home!
Planned an afternoon tasting with 5 friends. Reserved area was crowded and weird set up with benches and 2 chairs. No where did it say you had to preorder food if you want anything to eat during your tasting... so no food available. They were out of so many basic white wines it was disappointing. Service was okay but staff seemed disorganized. Definitely would not go back.
The winery is extremely nice. It has a great atmosphere. The staff is very friendly.
This place was AWESOME, my meat and cheese platter was very tasty. And the selection of wines were just spot on. I purchased 4 bottles
We were hoping for a little more direction with the tastings. The wine was good. The decor was pretty. We didn’t have any food.
it was awesome !
We really enjoyed the wine at Aridus. We ended up sending a case home. Our pourer was excellent. Aridus was by far the best of the three tasting rooms we visited.
The charcuterie board we the best we’ve ever eaten.
This was such a great experience. I came here with a group of friends and we really enjoy the wine, atmosphere and food. This was perfect to relax. I will definitely recommend.
Best wine and service! Love coming to Aridus and tasting all their wines
My husband and I came on a Friday afternoon because a work friend recommended it. We were not disappointed. We each did a tasting and both loved all of the wines we tried. We also got a meat and cheese charcuterie board which was fabulous... a mix of yummy cheeses, salami, prosciutto, nuts, olives, and crackers that went well with all of the wines we tried. The atmosphere was relaxed and it was fun to sit and people watch since the weather was perfect to have the garage-type doors open to the street. We got great recommendations for what to try and everyone was super friendly. We bought three bottles of wine to go and look forward to going back to try more wines.
Very nice selection of wines. Beautiful Charcuterie board
Best wine of the 3 tastings we did in the area. Charcuterie board was really good. I felt like they were a little under staffed for the number of people that were there, but if you are not in a hurry it is worth stopping by.
My husband and I arrived for our reservation promptly. It is a small space so we immediately noticed that there was no open seating. We approached the counter and were handed two wine glasses. We asked where we should take them and were told there were no available tables. I told him that we had made a reservation and he replied that the reservation allows us to come into the room but does not guarantee us a table. Hmm. I think if you are going to make your business accessible on Open Table then you should have an OPEN TABLE available if someone makes a reservation. Of course, I can understand if a party was overstaying their visit and we would need to wait, but the man behind the counter did not even offer this up as a possibility. So we left and headed to Elements and the Jade Bar at the Sanctuary at Camelback. And quite honestly, it was outstanding there. The atmosphere is lovely and welcoming. The drinks are well-made and the bar food delicious. And guess what? We didn't even have a reservation. But we got a table. And in the end, it was a beautiful evening at the Sanctuary. (Go there instead...we went back three times...it was that worthwhile.)
I appreciate the reservations were recommended and the care they have for social distancing, etc.. I mean.... we still are living in pandemic times. Jeffrey was very knowledgeable and pleasant. We didn’t have any food but the wines were great. We are glad we discovered Arizona wines. Highly recommend this place.
Wine was very good, as always. I like that they are limiting the amount of guests at this time, makes me feel more comfortable going. The charcuterie meat & cheese plate was better than expected! I recommend ordering this when you come in.
Not a relaxing wine tasting experience. Staff did not have time nor inclination to spend talking about wine. Party atmosphere was noisy and overwhelming.
Aridus was a great place to stop in for a quick wine tasting and cheese board
Me and my party had an amazing experience. I have been recommending you guys and we will definitely be back!
