Gift a Wine Club

Such a fun gift! Club Chatham Hill offers its members first releases of our

The Art & Science of Wine Blending. Experience first hand what
it takes to blend three wines in order to bring out the best in each.
Join our Winemaker to learn about the nuances of this craft and then

wines are judged simply by where they come from. We have plans to turn
this premise on its head. We will put three wines from around the world

wines will be similar in price and wine making styles. See if you or
your giftee can tell the difference! Date: Feb 15, 11am to 12:30

We are grateful for your business...
many of you know, we relocated our business this year from the Gateway
Center complex closer to downtown Cary. It has been a challenge in many ways
but most importantly in the dramatic decrease in visitors. We realize that
it will take time for folks to find us again and regret the loss of those
who have gone to our old site, saw we were not there and assumed we are out
of business. All this to say, we are very grateful to those of you that
have continued to support us with your business. Speaking for all small,
independent businesses, this time of year is often critical for our
survival. Please shop local as much as possible so we can all be around for
many years to come.
you and may you find peace during this special time of year. The Chatham
Hill Wine Gang
