To Bee or Not To Bee


Moving on Up in North Hills - Total Wine & More  


Right Side, Left Side, or Across Six Forks?  That's the dilemma one faces when describing where to find North Hills stores and restaurants.  And if the shop is in the hole behind the Target ... fuhgeddaboutit!  Well, Total Wine & More is no longer in the hole.  It has moved up and across the street (the Lassiter side) into the prominent space left by Harris Total WineTeeter.  Besides the obvious (VISIBILITY & PARKING), Total Wine & More now has 75% more space to showcase its inventory of over 8,000 wines, 2,500 beers, and its impressive selection of wine accessories, cigars, and gift items.


Bright, Uncluttered & Well Organized:  That's the first impression that comes to mind as you step into the new store.  Although it bills itself as America's Wine Superstore, this is definitely not the big box, impersonal experience.  We approached Wine Manager, Eric Casteel, with a request for a favorite Tuscany wine, Brunello di Montalcino Castello Banfi.  Eric not only knew it and quickly guided us to the wine, but also showcased the entire line of Brunello vintages that he had recently sampled.  Large signs make it easy to find a type of wine (or beer) and/or its origin plus Total Wine's personal picks and value selections.  Also on site is a cigar humidor, wine tastingWine Tasting at Total Wine stations (Free wine tastings on Friday and Saturday), and even a classroom for wine education.


Top of the Hops: From microbrews to alternative brews to imports, Total Wine has it covered.   Same for bottles, cans, and kegs.   Oktoberfest is just around the corner and it is not too early to stock the bar with a German favorite (or another from the 20+ countries stocked).  The incredible microbrew selection gives new meaning to "Strange Brew" and will make you think you've gone to brew camp.  Needless to say, if you can't find it, they can probably get it for you.


Total Wine & More: Hours of Operation - Mon - Thurs: 10am - 9pm, Fri: 10am - 10pm, Sat: 9am - 10pm, Sun: 12pm - 7pm; Phone: (919) 232-2580; Website; Complete Catalog 


Other Total Wine locations: Raleigh Triangle Plaza, 6105 Capital Blvd; Brier Creek Shopping Center, 8381 Brier Creek Parkway; Cary Crossroads Shopping Center, 333 Crossroads Blvd; Durham Patterson Place, 3615 Witherspoon Blvd

Olde Raleigh Real Estate newsletter Changed Times for Real Estate in Our Olde Raleigh Real Estate newsletter Neighborhood - These are not changing times; they are changed times. If you need to sell your home, you must be a "Smart Seller." Every home is in a beauty contest and a pricing war therefore, Smart Sellers know they must be extra vigilant in prepping and preparing their home for sale. This includes scrutiny of one's curb appeal, cosmetic and preventative maintenance, staging efforts and a presentation that makes your home irresistible to buyers.  
Smart Sellers are also forward thinking, and know how to increase their odds of selling for top dollar, by pricing their home compelling instead of competitive. A carefully calculated pricing strategy is imperative if you want to win in this market! Read More ....This is from the Quarterly newsletter from Olde Raleigh Real Estate.

TheBeltlineBuzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on TheBeltlineBuzz. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such. Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of TheBeltlineBuzz. Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way. So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.
That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line: "TheBeltlineBuzz Dedicated E-mail." Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. Not for any amount of money.
We hope that you continue to enjoy your BeltlineBuzz. We look forward to delivering it.
