The vineyards that we visit are the result of a rigorous selection, made in order to insure that traveling over the ocean to discover them will be completely worth it. I select and import vineyards because of their excellence and distinctiveness. The wine world, like everything else, is in perpetual evolution, an evolution that often goes faster than traditions, establishment minds, and marketers are able to analyse. It is consequently very common that the most cutting edge and exhilarating wines are not imported yet, or that our vision at Contrast Tours, matches better the producers's or what you expect. These wines are "Contrast Wines" wines.
Pursuing this philosophy has proven to be very successful, and I am happy to write that you can find Contrast Wines as prominent features in the best independent wine shops and select restaurants of North Carolina and NYC where I distribute as well: Asheville wine Market, Bond Street Wines, The Raleigh Wine Shop, Seabord Wine, Foxcroft, Hope Valley Wines, Bulldega, The Giorgios Hospitality Group, Chef & The Farmer, Custom Shop, The Oak House at Durham, Metro 8, Bull City Burger, Columbus Circle Wines, Broadway Cellars, Chambers Street Wines, Health Habit etc.
You will find them below classified by region, and if you click on any of these links you will be able to read about those wines and where you may purchase them in North Carolina, and in which restaurant you could enjoy them as well.
