WINE DEAL OF THE DAY 

2018 1448 Red Blend 

For those of you who love big, jammy wines, this one is for you.  It was a wine club selection in either 2010 or 2011, I can't remember for sure.  Right after that, it went viral and you could buy it anywhere and everywhere, so we stopped carrying it as we could not compete with the large box store's volume pricing.

The state of NC has ruled that everyone pays the same price, no matter what volume you sell of a product, which has helped us in some ways.  Some prices have gone up, some have gone down.  At least we are all on the same playing field now.

This deeply colored red red blend is bursting with black fruit flavor and notes of smoky earthiness. Aromas of coffee are evident and the smooth finish creates an easy drinking wine. California.

Price $18.99/Today $17.09/WCM $14.24  
Deal of the Week!

Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz

The color and fragrance of plum provide an alluring first glance, with gentle notes of strawberry and mocha filling the aroma. Expressive, rich fruit adds elements of blueberries and molten chocolate, while subtle tannins create a silky mouthfeel. The great intensity and complexity of Mollydooker's 2018 Blue Eyed Boy is no exception to its past. - Winemakers notes

Spicy, offering cumin, clove and smoked paprika notes that mingle well, with a hint of violet up front. Features toothsome blackberry and blueberry flavors at the core, resulting in a generous finish that shows impressive harmony. Drink now through 2034 - WS 92 pts.

Corona Virus

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.   Our hours will be 11-6 daily, Sunday 1-5.  Here are some of the steps we are taking to insure your safety.

  1. Washing our hands thoroughly after each interaction with a customer.
  2. Sanitizing commonly used spaces with Lysol and/or clorox to include doorknobs, counter tops, and bathroom spaces several times a day.
  3. 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.
For social distancing we are offering the following:
  1. Place your orders for wine via the phone.  We can do one of two things:
    1. Take payment over the phone and when we receive a call from the parking lot that you here, we can take it to your car and put it in the trunk.
    2. Delivery directly to your home
    3. You may also come inside the shop to browse and make your purchases.
  2. Social Distancing Measures:
    1. All wine and beer tastings are suspended until further notice.  In addition, there will be no more open bottles or taps for glass pours
  3. Finally, if you are sick, please stay home and take care.
