The store officially opened in Nov. 2021 and the official grand opening was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony March 23.

It’s a family-owned business with 23 beer taps pouring mainly craft beers, five wine taps and a large collection of wine and beer for sale. You’ll find bottled favorites from breweries local to the Carolinas.

Owners Joe and Mary Albanese wanted to create a space where they could enjoy high quality wines at reasonable prices.
