Wedge and Bottle

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.
Fortunately, we live in Ahwatukee, and this indeed is a gem. We stopped by last weekend for a glass of wine and snacks (perfect), and found a few nice Christmas gifts as well.
You know I love Wedge and Bottle!
Great people, super product, and a wonderful place to have a sandwich, meats, and cheese after pulling a bottle (or two) of bubbly out of their fridge to have with.
If you want a nice party platter for the holidays give them a shot. I got a 15-20 person platter with meat, cheese, nuts, artisan crackers, and olives that was a huge hit.
