The past year has seen Downtown Raleigh's specialty shops and beverage retail options expand very quickly. Downtown gained two new beer shops in the past year, Tasty Beverage Company in the Depot Building and Tyler's Bottle Shop in Seaboard Station. As well, Raleigh Wine Shop added another option on Glenwood South to buy some brews and a bottle of wine.
This weekend, The Raleigh Wine Shop will celebrate its first year in business this weekend with wine tastings, food samplings, specials on wine by the glass and bottle and deep discounts on six, twelve and more bottle purchases. The celebrating begins this Friday May 18th and concludes on Sunday May 20th with the Boxcarr Farms food truck in their parking lot serving Vinoburgers from the popular cookbook written by Raleigh Wine co-owner Jeff Bramwell. A full schedule of events is over at The Raleigh Wine Shop website.
