Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, a lifestyle brand and one of the nation’s fastest growing upscale casual dining restaurants, has now arrived in the Valley.

“Scottsdale and the surrounding Phoenix area has gained a national reputation for fine dining experiences, making it a natural fit for the Cooper’s Hawk brand,” founder Tim McEnery says. “The year-round beautiful weather, scenic surroundings and its residents’ active lifestyles were also very appealing.”

The Scottsdale restaurant, located at 7361 E. Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard, is the privately-owned company’s first in the western United States.

Each Cooper’s Hawk location offers wine tasting, a wine club, a shop with wines and accessories, and an expansive eating area suitable for both leisurely dining and business meetings. The menu features dishes that pair naturally with Cooper’s Hawk wines. Wines are made at the company’s main winery in Illinois and then aged and served at locations onsite. While well-established throughout the Midwest, Cooper’s Hawk also has locations from Michigan to Florida, along the East Coast.

Founder Tim McEnery opened the first winery and full restaurant in Orland Park, Ill., in 2005. This year marks the privately held company’s sixteenth anniversary. To learn more, visit, or follow along on Twitter @chwinery or Facebook at
