    We’re local!: We’re a proud member of the NC Independent Wine Retailers Association and Shop Local Raleigh. Most importantly, more of the money you spend with independently owned local businesses stays in the community when compared with chain retailers. Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally and provide the most jobs to residents in our community. Also, non-profit organizations receive an average of 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses.

     

    Our Philosophy on Wine Ratings:

    An Objective Measure for a Subjective Enterprise

    Eschewing the deeper debate of whether influential wine critics dogmatically impose their tastes upon the wine-drinking public, here’s our basic philosophy on the utility of those controversial wine reviews.

    Although there are elements in a wine that are objectively flawed or correct, the very nature of enjoyment is subjective.  Sometimes critics disagree with each other as to what is “bad”, “good” or “excellent”and that can be reflected in widely ranging scores for the same wine in the same vintage. Similarly, you may disagree with critics about a given wine.

    Having said that, we do understand that what an “experienced palate” has to say about a wine can be an important factor in your decision to purchase a bottle. Therefore, browsing our store and our website you’ll see sporadic quotes from wine critics and others in the business describing the wine – though we prefer to give you our impressions of the wine – and occasionally we’ll even post a critical score to pass along that information as well.However, points from critics do not guide our buying decisions. We make our own decisions about what wines we like and try to empower our customers to do the same.

    Look at points as one piece of information amongst many that can factor into your buying decision and never let anyone; a wine critic, us, your friends or even your spouse; tell you that you’re “wrong” if you like or dislike a wine. One thing that makes this pastime so much fun is that you are rarely “wrong”. We could all use more of that in our lives.

     

    Support Your Local Independent Retailer 

    The climate of retail America is changing rapidly, with large “big box” retailers, wine clubs and “virtual” storefronts putting the squeeze on small family-owned businesses. Yes, there can be some conveniences to shopping in a chain store, but many times the independent retailer offers far better selection and service with competitive prices. Plus, more of your dollars are returned to the local community, instead of flowing to a corporate office. We also live in our communities and support local charitable organizations.

    We are proud to be a charter member of the North Carolina Independent Wine Retailers Association and we encourage you to support your locally owned independent businesses including wine shops, bookstores, shoe stores, clothing stores, etc…whenever possible.
