Mary's Last (Wine) Stand

Mary will help with your wine selection

It has been three and a half years since we hired Mary Mehlich away from her position as our Sales Rep for The Country Vintner and had her start as Manager of Wine & Words...& Gourmet. She has been a great addition. I’ve come to rely on her not only as an employee, but as a collaborator and, indeed, as a friend. It seems fitting that, in her last weekend as “the wine gal” in Washington, we let her take the lead. So she is introducing four new (for us) wines in Washington. She deserves to take a bow to a round of hearty applause.

James Lupton, author of Pilgrimage of Grace will read from and sign copies of the second volume of his book, while Back Bay Cafe serves a traditional English tea

We are celebrating the publication of Perilous Power, the second and final volume of Pilgrimage of Grace.  This book takes Roger Lupton into high royal circles and climaxes in the rebellion sweeping across England in 1536 when he is forced to make hard choices. Only after many years and false leads is the murder mystery finally solved.

Wine & Words/The Back Bay Cafe is 2010 Small Business of the Year


Award from Belhaven Community Chamber of Commerce

We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you, all our loyal fans and new visitors alike!

Happy Birthday to...Us

On April 24, 2002 a new store was born in the resurrected shell of the old Windley/willis grocery store in Belhaven, NC. With the unusual name of "Wine & Words," the little store sold a small selection of wines not available anywhere else in the region, as well as coffees and teas, used books and the arts and crafts productions of a number of local artists.

That was eight years ago, and we now have a large selection of unique wines, cheeses from around the world, specialty foods and Cook's Helpers, as well as many shelves full of discount priced books and CD's.
