Friday's Uncorked: Celebrate Tuscany with Haw River Wine Man

Join us Friday, November 17th at 5 pm for Friday's Uncorked as we welcome Eric Merlau and the Haw River Wine Man who will be pouring wines from Italy with an emphasis on the Tuscany region of Italy. He will be pouring the following wines:



  • Lis Neris Pinot Grigio

  • Tabarrini 'Padrone della vigne' Bianco

  • Coffele 'Alzari' Soave

  • Valle Dell'Acate Frappato

  • Garofoli 'Piancarda' Montepulciano

  • Cordero di Montezemolo "Monfalletto' Barolo


Eric Merlau has been in the wine importing and distribution business for 9 years in the Triangle area with local importer, Haw River Wine Man. HRWM is one of the longest standing importers in the area, in business for 22 years. Eric has traveled to Italy and Spain to work with and get to know the growers, their families and their land. The philosophy behind their company is to bring wine of spectacular quality, to the tables of EVERYONE, at an approachable price, and they are able to do so by cutting out the middle man, and taking on both the importation and distribution aspects of the process. "The job is a passion, and has become extremely personal to me over the years, as our producers have become part of our families, and we have shared the history, tradition and fruits of the terroir that has been passed down through the generations"


Friday’s Uncorked is a great way to start the weekend. This event is normally $10 per person, but is a complimentary event for the holiday season. This is an enriching way to expand your wine knowledge while mingling with friends.  


All featured wines are 20% off during this event, that will be held from 5 pm to the last pour.
