Stop by today to see our NEW selection of gift items. We typically only run sales on our gift items between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is an opportunity to begin your Christmas shopping early!
Two days only 10% off of gift items/25% for WCM.
We have spoken with Constant Contact as well as our internet provider to attempt to rectify the problem that we have been having receiving your emails to reserve items. The safest way to insure you receive them is to call 910-933-4384.
No need to feel you have to come into the shop daily to take advantage of the Deals of the Day.
If you see something you want, please call us as we have not been receiving some folks' emails.
We will save your orders until you can come pick them up. Again, we can bring your stash to the car for you and you don't even need to come inside. Or, if you are more comfortable, pay by phone and we can deliver!
Thanks so much for your continued support! We appreciate you more than you know!
Deal of The Week Byron 2016 Pinot Noir Fiddlestix Vineyards - ONLY 11 BOTTLES AVAILABLE - WHEN IT'S GONE, IT'S GONE
Made using 45% new oak, the 2016 Pinot Noir Fiddlestix Vineyard has a pale to medium ruby color and opens with oak aromas of chocolate and nutmeg, fleshing out to potpourri, black tea leaves, cocoa, red cherry sparks and black cherries with savory/meaty accents-that oak is present, but there's plenty else here of interest and depth. Medium-bodied, it's lushly fruited in the mouth with tons of spice, very finely grained tannins and wonderful juicy freshness, finishing long and chocolaty. Give this plenty more time in bottle. 350 cases produced__93 pts. Wine Advocate

Regarding Wine And Beer Tastings - Wine tastings will resume Friday, June 5th. However, to manage crowd control, we have elected to limit the wine tastings to anytime between 11-4 both Friday and Saturday. NO EXCEPTIONS TO HOURS!!! The reason for this is to maintain social distancing. We don't want to be the police, so please support us with this change until there is a vaccine! Tastings will be in small plastic shot glasses. We're not being miserly, just health conscious.
At The Grape & Ale we are taking this pandemic seriously and hope you are as well. The safety and health of our customers and staff is of prime importance. Here are some of the steps we are taking to insure your safety.
Washing our hands thoroughly after each interaction with a customer.
Sanitizing commonly used spaces with Lysol and/or clorox to include doorknobs, counter tops, and bathroom spaces several times a day.
While hand sanitizer for your use is hard to come by right now, I am preparing to make our own using rubbing alcohol and essential oils. If you would like to get the recipe, let us know.
All employees are wearing masks.
For social distancing we are offering the following:
Place your orders for wine via the phone. We can do one of two things:
Take payment over the phone and when we receive a call from the parking lot that you are here, we can take it to your car and put it in the trunk.
Delivery directly to your home
You may also come inside the shop to browse and make your purchases while maintaining social distancing.
Finally, if you are sick, please stay home and take care.
