The owners of Casavino Winery in Fountain Hills have taken their passion for delectable eats and fine wines to the next level. Their latest venture, Twisted Rose Winery and Eatery is now open in the Scottsdale Airpark.
“I have an ongoing love affair with remarkable food and wine,” said Twisted Rose Co-Owner Frank Yaconis. “Twisted Rose brings to life my vision for a comfortable wine bar in a relaxed atmosphere that showcases my passion.”
Twisted Rose Winery and Eatery offers Casavino’s line of wines including Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc, Moscato, Viognier and more for sale by the bottle or glass. Many of these wines will be crafted and aged on site in Twisted Rose’s winemaking room.
“The wine making groups from Casavino and Twisted Rose are in collaboration with some of the best winemakers in the world and have formed the ultimate team to provide world class wines at very reasonable price for our customers,” said Yaconis.
Executive Chef and Co-Owner Nick Schaus brings his culinary prowess to the team after years of high-end restaurant and catering experience. His culinary point of view is “twisted” as each dish on the menu has his signature spin.
Twisted Rose’s menu features happy hour specials like stuffed mushrooms, appetizers including grilled artichokes and an antipasto platter, open-faced sandwiches like caprese or honey-lime braised chicken, salads like the mediterranean chopped, entrees including maple-glazed salmon and a selection of desserts.
The broad menu utilizes wine as a key ingredient in a variety of dishes. From pulled pork with a merlot-based BBQ sauce and stuffed apples, to fettuccine alfredo with a chardonnay cheese sauce, to Schaus’ legendary bread pudding with brandied fruit and raspberries.
“I am using Casavino’s entire suite of wines in my dishes. We want the diner to experience these wines in every facet of their meal. Wine transcends simply sipping it from the glass,” said Schaus.
The winery and eatery is open Monday- Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:00- a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sundays from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Casavino wines round out the happy hour menu Monday- Saturday for $5/glass from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
