The Raleigh Wine Shop will be having a grand opening celebration from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. this Saturday, May 21. The wine shop is opening at 126 Glenwood Ave., across from 518 West. The owners are Seth Hoffman, a manager at Seaboard Wine for seven years and Jeff Bramwell, a manager there for two years. They have teamed up with Ryan Fulkerson, who used to work on the wholesale side of the wine business.
The shop focuses on “handmade wines,” where you know who grew the grapes and who made the wines, as opposed to mass produced wines. Saturday’s event will feature wine tastings from 11:30 a.m. onward, the Farmhands Foods Sausage Wagon and possibly coffee and cheese samples.
