EVENTS & TASTINGS

Wine Tastings & Dinners to Beer Tastings & Parking Lot Parties, Taylor’s always has something Exciting going on!

We’ve always thought that the best way to learn what a wine tastes like is to actually TASTE it.  To help or customers learn more about the wines we carry as well as craft beers and other local products we sell, we host numerous events throughout the year.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Due to COVID-19, we cancelled all in store and off site wine tastings, dinners & events. We will be following this crisis closely and monitoring official guidelines. We are looking forward to a time when we can all get together again. Please check back often or call us at 919-847-3069 if you have any questions. Please stay safe.

Ancient Peaks Virtual Tasting with Founding Winemaker Mike Sinor on February 11, 2021 at 6:30pm Eastern Time

Ancient Peaks Virtual Tasting with Founding Winemaker Mike Sinor on February 11, 2021 at 6:30pm Eastern Time

The picturesque Santa Rita Ranch Vineyards in Paso Robles are home to the Ancient Peaks Winery. Steeped in Mission-era history and Wild West mythology, Santa Margarita Ranch is today owned by three longtime local wine growing and ranching families who are committed to advancing the land’s legacy of “early California rancho hospitality”.  This Estate Vineyard stands alone and apart as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, and as the only vineyard in the Santa Margarita Ranch AVA.  The Santa Margarita Ranch AVA is distinguished by one of the coolest, longest growing seasons in the Paso Robles region. It also features a rare diversity of soil types—a testament to the tectonic friction that created the surrounding Santa Lucia mountain peaks.

Please join us on February 11th and meet Mike Sinor, the founding winemaker!  He will teach us all about Paso Robles winemaking while guiding us through a tasting of his award-winning wines.

Purchase one of the 4 Bottle Tasting Packs, and we will send you a link to join the Zoom meeting.  Bring your questions! Taste these amazing wines in the comfort of your own home, while learning from the best.

1 bottle 2019 Ancient Peaks Sauvignon Blanc

Mike Sinor, Founding Winemaker

Mike Sinor is recognized as one of the Central Coast’s highest-rated winemakers. His winemaking career on the Central Coast spans more than 20 years. At Ancient Peaks Winery, Mike directs the quality and style of the wines, and he also oversees viticultural practices at the winery’s estate Margarita Vineyard. His first complete vintage with Ancient Peaks was 2006. “The opportunity to work with Margarita Vineyard is what really drew me to Ancient Peaks,” Mike says. “The growing conditions here are remarkable—and that’s something I’m driven to reflect in the wines of Ancient Peaks.”

OUR EVENTS MEANT TO BE AS FUN AS THEY ARE EDUCATIONAL AND INCLUDE:

BI-MONTHLY TASTINGS

At least twice each month we host Beer & Wine tastings at the store featuring 4-6 selections for customers to try with an expert on hand to tell you all about them.

WINERY TASTING EVENTS

Who better to explain the nuances of a special wine than the folks that made it? We love having winery reps, winery owners and winemakers behind our bar and schedule them as often as possible.

WINERY & WINEMAKER DINNERS

Several times each year we partner up with our favorite winemakers to host food and wine pairing events at one of Raleigh’s top restaurants.

CHARITY EVENTS

We try to give back to our community as much as we can. Each spring and fall, Taylor’s hosts a BBQ luncheon to benefit a local charity in addition to numerous other fundraising and community building events throughout the year.

THANK YOU FROM TAYLOR'S!
