1st place: My Wine Cellar5030 E. Warner Road, Suite 1-2(480) 598-9463www.my-wine-cellar.com

Head west on the freeway at East Warner Road and if you're not careful, you might actually miss My Wine Cellar peeking its doors out on the north side of the street.

But if you do miss it, just flip on that turn signal and jump right back around. This is one power-packed, home-grown Ahwatukee Foothills establishment you won't want to miss.

Owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Tom and Kathleen Fordyce, My Wine Cellar has earned the titles of Ahwatukee Foothills' "Best Place to Buy a Bottle of Wine," and "Best Place for An Evening Out."

"Guests come here to relax, enjoy live music, enjoy our menu - mainly appetizers and light fare - and while here, they definitely experience a small business with high energy and a welcoming environment," Kathleen Fordyce said.

A community staple for a decade now, Fordyce said it also helps that she and her husband aren't just behind-the-scenes owners, but actually cater to the day-to-day operations. "Both Tommy and I are here working on a daily basis and I think that by being a small business owner, that is what it is all about."
