In the spirit of my other topic on cocktail and wine bars, I'll also need a local wine shop that can provide me with interesting bottles. I'm willing to do the Total Wine thing for staples (though the lack of case discounts hurts me because I'm used to 15-20% mixed case discounts at home), but is there anywhere in Durham I can pop into for an interesting bottle or two. Making these cool discoveries is contingent on having a smart buyer/owner and engaged staff, so those are my other two criteria.
I don't really want to have to trek out to Raleigh to check out this Carolina Wine Company place that people like. And even A Southern Season is a bit of a hassle to get to with 15-501 traffic.
A local joint in Durham would be nice. Suggestions now that Fowler's is kaput?
