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

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.


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.


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.


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.


Thanks everyone for making Taylor’s the fun place it is! We could not have done it without you!
