Locally-owned wine shop opens in the heart of Durham
Posted October 29, 2012
Cave Taureau, a wine retailer in Durham, opened only last week but is already reaching out to the community. The store hosted a free wine tasting last Saturday, and after only thirty minutes, the store was packed.
Owner Noel Sherr and his wife Marie moved to Durham two years ago after working in the wine industry in New York City for several years. Marie said that although the big city was nice for a while, they love Durham and don't know why they didn't move here sooner. The husband and wife duo, along with their business partners Wes Rountree and Nathan Vandergrift, are very excited to be working alongside other vibrant Durham businesses and providing the best products for the community.
Situated in what used to be a pawn shop, Cave Taureau retains its historic feel while looking modern and fresh. Clearly labeled shelves tell what regions the wines came from, and all the bottles are clearly marked with handwritten price tags. They only sell wine, but you'll find a bottle to fit every budget.
Keep an eye on Cave Taureau, as they're planning to team up with other businesses and local restaurants for fun events, such as special wine dinners and tastings. With such a focus on building relationships with the community, we know Cave Taureau will be a popular spot in Durham.
