Wake Forest NC - The Twisted Vine Wine Shoppe - Historic Downtown Wake Forest!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with RED Properties NC #129285

Historic Downtown Wake Forest NC just got an incredible new addition to its already impressive list of destination shops - the Twisted Vine Wine Shoppe!

Twisted Vine is owned by some familiar faces in Wake Forest NC - yep, the same smiling and friendly faces that you see at the Wake Forest Coffee CompanyAlbert Barneto and Bob Cubillas.       

Twisted Vine has some amazing wines available from all over the world including Italy, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Austrailia, and France to name just a few!  They also stock some tremendous Yadkin Valley wines that come from here in our own back yard - North Carolina! When selecting their wines for inventory they reached out to the Wake Forest NC community and solicited their feedback as to what they wanted to see - so, this really is a wine shoppe for the community! 

They have wines for every budget and every occasion whether a light white wine for an afternoon picnic in the park to a deep, rich, decadent red for a dinner party!  Be sure to check out their climate controlled wine cooler - I have never heard or seen of one before but Bob was quick to educate me on the thermometer and how it works and keeps the wines at the PERFECT temperature!

The shoppe itself is beautiful!  Exposed brick walls, tall windows with rich coverings, and rustic hardwood floors lend to the ambiance and they have done a fabulous job with their displays! They have a bar set up for their special events which are popular and frequent.  Be sure to join them for one of their tastings- you never know what kind of wine you might discover.

The Twisted Vine is a social butterfly of sorts as well - you can check them out at their website:

their Facebook page:

and their Twitter account:

The hours of operation for the Twisted Vine are Wednesday - Monday from Noon until 9pm.  They are closed on Tuesdays.  Regardless of WHEN you stop by I am sure that you will see this guy there - the always present smile and ALWAYS willing to tell you a little bit about wine!  You rock, Bob!

I love going to wine store and being able to talk to someone that knows the product and can help me make informed decisions. Sounds like you found one.

Sally - The shop is WONDERFUL!  I am so excited that it has made it's home in downtown Wake Forest!

What a gorgeous shop.  I love the warmth of the brick and wood.  I wish the owners good luck.  You can really tell that they care about this business.

Hi Leesa ~ Wake Forest sure sounds like it makes the short list of "best places" and The Twisted Vine looks wonderful.  The ceiling height, oversized windows and brick walls make for a lovely place.

There's another GREAT wine shop in Wake Forest, too - Wine 101.   The staff there is great, I've never been disappointed by a bottle (and I've bought SEVERAL).  They're celebrating their 1st anniversary next weekend:  www.wine101nc.com.  It's nice to see Wake Forest is sophisticated and fun enough these days to support two local wine shops!

Wake Forest Wine Lover - Yes, Wine 101 is an outstanding shop and Joe is GREAT!  I have written posts about them as well in the past - there are just so many awesome places to go in Wake Forest NC that I can't blog fast enough about them!
