Beer & Wine

Links

Like our uniquely sourced coffee, we are just as passionate about our beer & wine selection. Our thoughtful selection will never be the biggest, but we pride ourselves on locating and offering some amazingly unique wines, sourced from small farms & family growers.

Whether it is wine or coffee that we choose for the Caffe, we look for similar things. We search out smaller farmers who each passionately labor to have a high quality representation of what their soil, their “terroir”, can produce. For us this term not only encompasses the land, climate and farming practices; but also the traditions and personality of each winemaker. Many of our wines are produced by friends & aquaintances and each time we sell a bottle, we consider the person behind it. Our hope is that you too will be inspired by our selections, and create your own memories with your friends.

Our Beer selection features some favorites from around the world, with the emphasis on NC craft brewers – always changing seasonally and for variety!
