Places: The Wine Feed in Durham North Carolina

Image
Several weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting The Wine Feed in Durham NC for a wine tasting.
 They have a large variety of wines, but on this day we tasted North Carolina Wines.
307 Roxboro Street Durham NC When I go downtown,  it seems I have to figure out a parking strategy before I get to my destination. The Wine Feed is the exception.  There was plenty of parking on site.
We received a detailed description of each wine we tasted.

You know I love events, and the Wine Feed has a good amount of tastings and events. The Wine Feed Calendar

World Market: My Favorite Place to Buy Wine

Image
I enjoy a nice glass of wine.  To me, it is comfort food right up there with coffee. I love to visit wineries, enjoy a tasting and take home a bottle of their wine. There is not always that opportunity to venture off to a winery, and in those times I have a go-to place to stock up on wine, that place is World Market. There are 13 World Market locations in North Carolina.   They carry wine from all over the world and even some North Carolina Wine.
Here is a quote from their website. "Always affordable, our selection of wine, imported beer, champagne, sangria,  cocktails and aperitifs create the perfect wine night or microbrew barbecue".
The reason I love World Market for wine is that they have a huge selection and they have incredible sales.  You get a discount if you buy six bottles.  I usually end up getting six bottles for around $55.00.  That is a great price.  I was a member of WineC, and although it was fun to get new and unique wines, I find it much more cost effective t…

Curtain Calls and Wine Wishes Oct 2018

Image
I love the performing arts, and I love wine.  I thought I would look ahead into Sept and find some shows and wine events in my area of North Carolina that I would like to attend.  I wish I could attend every event but as my mom used to say "If wishes were horses then beggars would ride," another quote she used to throw around was "champagne taste on a beer budget."  I can dream though and sometimes dreams do come true.
