North Carolina Wine Shops, Cellars, and
The rise in the popularity and interest in wine
has resulted in the increase of North Carolina wine shops. These wine stores
are more than the usual liquor store. In cities like Boone, Mt. Airy,
Charlotte and Asheville there are wine cellars that specialize in fine
NC wines as well as national and international wines. Some also
sell beer and liquor, but more and more are specialized just for
wine. They usually have an extensive selection of wines and a friendly
and knowledgeable staff that can help you to select the perfect
wine for every occasion. The sommelier or wine steward on staff
is an excellent resource for any questions you have about wine.
NC Wine Shop Wine Tasting
Wine shops in Elizabeth City, Henderson, Hickory
or Gastonia may also offer wine tasting events too. That's right!
Many NC wine cellars will host wine tasting events where customers
can sample new wines and get more detailed information about the
wine regions they come from. Every North Carolina wine shop is different.
They each offer unique wines and may specialize in specific wines
from specific NC wineries. Often at these events, the wine shop
will feature wines from a particular winery or a representative
from a winery will come to present their wines and answer questions.
All you need to do is arrive thirsty and ready to taste great wine!
And often the featured wines are available at a savings. You can
also purchase wines by the case if you find one you really love.
If it turns out to be a local wine you love, you can find out more
about that particular winery and make plans to tour that North
Carolina winery. So if you want a great selection of wines to
choose from, visit The Wine Rack, Wilmington Wine Shoppe & Event
Gallery, Tar Heel Wine Traders, or Wine Merchants Gourmet and see
what these and other excellent NC wine shops have to offer. As always,
Wine Bar Wineries is here to help you find the perfect wine store
to buy great wines.
