Scottsdale residents, you're getting your own Postino WineCafé. The popular wine bar and restaurant with locations in Phoenix, Gilbert, and Tempe, will open at Kierland Commons at 7030 East Greenway Parkway on Wednesday, February 10.
Postino is best known for its affordable selection of wines, which rotate seasonally, as well as for several popular promotions including $5 before 5 p.m., which lets drinkers cash in on $5 glasses of wine and beer before 5 p.m. everyday, and $20 Bottle and Board, which includes a bottle of wine and a board of bruschetta on Monday and Tuesday nights.
Unlike the original location, which is housed inside a former post office in the Arcadia neighborhood, the first Scottsdale Postino can be found in a newly built two-story space on the west side of the Kierland Commons, an upscale shopping center locate on the northwest corner of Scottsdale Road and Greenway Parkway. As at the other locations, expect rollaway garage doors separating the indoor and outdoor spaces and a Midcentury Modern-inspired design. The Scottsdale wine bar will also have a second story loft that can be used as a private dining and meeting space.
The menu will include Postino favorites such as the Pub Board, featuring MJ Bread pretzels and Schreiner’s chorizo, as well as a selection of salads and panini. Of course, the restaurant's well-loved bruschetta boards will be available with topping combinations including tomato, mozzarella, and basil; smoked salmon and pesto; white bean and chopped tomato; and prosciutto with fig and mascarpone.
