Summers in the desert seem endless, don’t they? With the relentless sun, spiking temperatures and distant dreams of winter, it’s easy to think that there’s no escape, but you’re wrong. (Gasp!) This month, Get Your PHX is staying cool with Jenna Rousseau at her new spot, Central Wine Bar. Nestled in the cozy corner of shared property along with modern Asian concept restaurant, Clever Koi and Model Citizen, the new micro salon by Leidan Mitchell, Rousseau’s new digs is an oasis of great wine and happy memories. Jenna’s roots run five generations deep here in Phoenix, which makes her proud to call Arizona ‘home’. After attending college in California, she opted to stay and learn the wine culture of Sonoma and San Francisco, working and cultivating her passion. She then brought that knowledge back reflecting, “I was lucky to go to college in California and then live in Sonoma…but I’m glad to be home and hopefully brought a little bit of San Francisco to Phoenix by opening Central Wine.”
Rousseau strives to bring something new and delicious and says, “It’s not a requirement to know a lot about wine … just the fact that you enjoy it are curious about finding new things to try.” The goal is to create a destination for the community, a place to come and relax, unwind, and enjoy. “We aren’t wine snobs,” Rousseau adds, “but we do strive for deliciousness and creativity in our menu and hope that we just keep people coming back.” Don’t you worry, we will!
Any political junky out there may find it interesting to know, (political views aside), that the space was formerly used as John McCain’s election office.
Get Your PHX will be soaking up the wine scene on June 19th and invite you to come check out Central Wine Bar and Model Citizen next door. Snacks and drink specials will be provided.
