Grapevine Wine is just across the border in nearby Fort Mill, SC, and they offer Charlotteans the distinction of being able to fill growlers (in NC, growlers can only be filled at the breweries). In addition to the growler selection, the store also stocks hundreds of craft beer bottles, including some brands — like COAST Brewing of Charleston — that aren’t available in North Carolina.
Grapevine also boasts a nice selection of wines and cigars, great food, and a nice patio section. Being within walking distance from other bars and pubs in Baxter Village makes Grapevine Wine a great candidate for bar crawls, which they’ll often help put on with the help of their neighbors.
Make sure to check out Grapevine Wine’s Beertopia beer festival, which takes place in March every year just before Charlotte Craft Beer Week.
