To our past, current and future customers,

As many of you know, events of the past few years have been particularly stressful for everyone at Wine & Beer 101, and in particular for our founder and co-owner, Joe O’Keefe.  Consequently, Joe has taken the decision to take a step back from the daily operation of the bottle shop as of February 15, 2023.  Joe will remain available to help customers with special orders and program the wine dinner events through 2023.  In addition, we have worked diligently to provide our staff with the ability to receive and fulfill any special orders you may have – the primary point of contact moving forward will be through [email protected], by calling the shop at 919 544-4638 or by stopping by and speaking with one of our staff. 

Thank you for your continued support of Wine & Beer 101 and the Gastropub!

Jeffrey Fieldman, Bob Jacobs, Laurie Jacobs, Diane Zewalk and Joe O’Keefe

Guest Reviews

We Love Our Customers

“Always love this place. Good for music, food trucks and of course, drinks. If you need a place to take an out of town guest, this is a good start!”


“[The owner] takes the time to get to know his customers, their likes, their interests. And is always helpful and smiling.”

“Great place to find many beers and wines. They have my favorite wine that I can’t find anywhere near me; The closest place is over an hour away! “
