Wine Bar Review – Corkscrew – Huntersville – Lake Norman   Leave a comment

This is a review of a wine shop and bar located in Birkdale Village in Huntersville, NC

Corkscrew Bar & Wine Shoppe – a great Lake Norman rest stop after work

Interested in a glass of wine and some light cheeses or
hummus after work?
Well then, Birkdale Village
Corkscrew
is the place for you to unwind and uncork!

It’s right off exit 25 on I-77 and I give this place 5 stars
out of 5!

The Corkscrew in Huntersville, is a unique wine bar that
features a wall of wines by the bottle and a full menu of wines
by the glass for you to try. Unsure of your selection? Just ask
any of the bar keeps – they are extremely friendly and
knowledgeable about the wine flavors on hand.

Not only is the atmosphere really upscale and urban, but you
are within walking distance to many other restaurants to complete
your dinner meal. It’s a great stop after work or a prelude to a
wonderful dinner or movie at Regal Cinemas.

You can sit outdoors or inside. There is plenty to entertain
your eyes from the art work on the walls, to the television with
captions, or to the shoppers walking the village outside.

Corkscrew also offers some select beers and sparkling
champagnes if you are celebrating or looking for something a
little different too.

The Lake Norman Wine Group holds tastings there about once a
month. You can check out the schedule at www.lknwinegroup.com

Wine Loft Wine Bar Review – Mooresville NC – Lake Norman   Leave a comment

This is a review of a new wine bar business located in Mooresville, NC called The Wine Loft. It’s a very swanky place!

Wine Bar Review – The Wine Loft – Wine
Bar – Mooresville, NC

Need Directions? The Wine Loft is a new wine bar located in Mooresville in the
Harris Teeter Shopping Center off Perth Road. Take I-77N to exit 36 and go west
at top of ramp. Take right onto Perth Road and take your first right turn into

The Wine
Loft

130 Argus
Lane

Mooresville,
NC 28117

(704)
664-3230

www.thewineloftmooresville.com

The Wine Loft is an upscale wine
bar offering over 40 selections of wine by the glass and over 100 by the bottle.
In addition to the large selection of wines, sparkling wines, and dessert or
port wines; they also have a good selection of spirits and light cuisines. The
atmosphere is very swanky, upscale, and soothing. The lighting, comfortable
couches, and bar seating are perfect for entertaining or hanging out with
friends.

The Wine Loft has been featured
in the Wall Street Journal, Maxim magazine, & New York Times.

I had the lucky “chance” to hang
out with “Chanse”, the manager during the Wine Loft’s soft opening week and get
to taste some of the food and wines, and to check out the venue for a
future meetup place for my wine group www.lknwinegroup.com .

You really need to try the food
because what I tried so far was fabulous! I can’t wait to go back and try some
more items off the menu. Here is just a sampling of the tasty cuisine they
feature:

·
Baked Brie En Croute –Vanilla infused honey spiced pecans and
& balsamic reduction (THIS TASTES AMAZING!)

·
Artisan Cheese Selection –Roasted Garlic, toasted almonds, &
quince paste (I highly recommend this too)

·
Filet Pistolettes – Maytag blue cheese butter & sweet onion
jam

·
Proscuitto, Carmalized Onion & Fromage Blanc Pizzetti –
with Arugula herb salad

And for desserts:

·
Molton Lava Cake –
Vanilla infused honey & ice cream Quenelles

·
Coffee Crème Brulee –with Vanilla sugar and dark
chocolate

YUM!! The bar keep can make some
suggestions for you, but if you look on the inside menu, there are some printed
with prices with a wonderful description of the flavors and finish tastes.

The bar keeps had a lot of
friendly conversation and I found out everyone is new to the Lake Norman area so
we had much to talk about. I tasted a glass of Ravenswood Zinfandel Lodi for $8
per glass and also a glass of Stephen Vincent Pinot Noir Sonoma for $10 per
glass and both were delicious and fresh.

The Wine Loft offers:

·
Team Suggestions

·
½ price bottles every Tuesday

·
Tastings on Wednesday from 5:30-7:30

·
Host for Private Parties or Events from 10-150 people

Restaurant Reviews – Lake Norman   Leave a comment

I recently joined “Yelp”, a restaurant review web site. It’s really interesting to read what other people think about my favorite (and unfavorite) restaurants.

I’ve started writing my reviews on past experiences at these places. I am also able to review bars, businesses, retailers….so this should be a lot of fun for me and entertaining (hopefully) for you.

What’s this?
