“Hidden Gem--Wine Bar with Southern Hospitality”
Review of Tasting Room

Tasting Room
Reviewed January 25, 2014

If you're looking for a friendly, low-key place to either enjoy your favorite wine or try something completely new in a cozy local venue, the Tasting Room definitely fits the bill.

For connoisseurs, they'll most likely have something to match your tastes, with a wide range in price and vintage. For those of us new to the wine scene (or who just want a relaxing place to have a beer), hosts Alison and Joey will make you feel right at home.

They host a wide variety of events, tastings, and occasional live music (unusual for such a small venue but it adds to the appeal). You can sign up for special reduced-price regular events, but the most appealing feature for me is the no-pressure way they present new items and suggest things that might be to your taste.

The atmosphere is pure neighborhood warmth, with an eclectic clientele in an interesting building converted from a vintage Pure gas station, as you can see from their website. I've become a regular just to drop in to try something new, chill out, or enjoy a beer with friends.

They stock an impressive selection of wines, both by the glass and the bottle, including local NC vintages as well as new and interesting selections from the US and the rest of the world. Although they don't serve food, there is a terrific, high-quality food truck outside that is staffed by a talented cook and who will deliver your selection to your table or the bar.

The owner has recently also opened his own winery just outside Greensboro in the Yadkin Valley, which tells you that these folks are more than just barkeepers.

Overall, a great place to stop in and make some new friends.
