Have you ever wanted to host a wine or beer tasting in the comfort of your home but also want to enjoy your company at the same time?

Grape and Barley has you covered with our new convenient At Home Wine/Beer Tasting Program.

The process is really simple: give us a call at 704-864-2718 or stop by the shop to select the day and time as well as your alcohol parameters, which includes a minimum of 6 bottles. Location must be in a 10 mile radius of the store.

A G&B representative will arrive on the selected day with tasting notes to educate you and your guests. We can make this as educational or fun as you desire. Have a theme in mind? Let us know! We can accomodate.

What a better way to get people together for a birthday, holiday or just for the heck of it than over some wine or beer with little of the work.
