If you want to buy a bottle of wine, one of these stores are sure to have what you need. Although some of these have wine tastings and events, they are primarily retailers, as opposed to cafés.
A J's Fine Foods

All of our Cellar Masters have sampled and rated wines with great taste, structure and value....Wines from South America, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Germany, and California are represented on the list; which includes varieties such as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Viognier, Muscat, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc." A J's Fine Foods has eleven locations in the metro Phoenix/Scolttsdale area.

Su Vino Winery
Scottsdale. From the web site: "Su Vino Winery, Scottsdale, is a family owned and operated winery located in the Arts District of Downtown Scottsdale. Su Vino is an award winning winery with a twist, not only have we won over 36 medals for our wines, but we are the first winery in the Scottsdale area and the first to offer customers the opportunity to have wine made specifically for them and their palate."
From the web site: "...we have created a comfortable, affordable and fun way to buy wines, based on flavor and body. We guarantee our wines and stand behind each bottle we sell. Come and experience for yourself at one of our upcoming wine tasting events!" One location in Arizona in North Phoenix.
Not Locally Owned, But With Locations In Greater Phoenix
From the web site: "Wilfred Wong, our BevMo! Cellarmaster, and one of the most prolific and experienced wine judges in the U.S., describes and rates most of the wines offered in the stores in printed signs posted by their respective bottles, guiding customers in their selection process. He currently tastes over 8,000 wines annually and judges in over a dozen major wine competitions each year." Eight locations in the Valley.
Cost Plus World Market
From the web site: "Our buyers travel the world visiting remote villages, centuries-old factories and foreign bazaars searching for unique products to offer our customers. Baskets from Bali, chocolates from Belgium, pottery from Portugal, and wine from around the world." Seven locations in the Valley.
From the web site: "For those of you who don't know us well yet, our initial reason for being in the business of selling wine is we want to offer our customers good wines for a great deal. Whether it's a very well priced Chard from Australia or a robust red from Chile, we want to be the ones who offer those options at an outstanding value." Nine locations in the Valley. Trader Joe's is a grocery store that is a favorite of those who are looking for vegetarian, Kosher, organic and other specialty foods.
Total Wine & More
From the web site: "We are committed to having the best wine selection with an emphasis on fine wines. This differentiates us from many retailers in the United States who specialize in one geographic area or price category. Our typical store carries more than 8,000 different wines from every wine-producing region in the world." Phoenix, Tempe, Gilbert, Scottsdale, Glendale, Goodyear.
