Family Business

“We are all in this Together”

Many family-owned wineries are, like us, fighting every day to survive the affects this tragic pandemic has had on the hospitality industry. Throughout the year we are featuring wineries that cater to restaurants, not retail, so they are really feeling it too.

Through the month of May we are pouring support for Hess Shirtail Ranches Wines. The Shirtail Ranches Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are 100% restaurant exclusive wines, handcrafted with food and wine pairings in mind.

A Positive Difference with Every Pour

The original Village Tavern opened its doors in 1984 in Winston-Salem, NC. The idea was simple, serve the best possible food, at affordable prices, using only the finest freshest ingredients, while enriching the lives of each other, our guests, and our community. In other words, make a positive difference.

Our Supporting Sips Series stems from wanting to get back to the core of who we are, something we are able to do because of the support we have received from our communities.

This pandemic has been challenging for us and the rest of the independent, privately-owned restaurants.  The greatest asset we have is our people.  Many of our team members have been with us for decades:  they are our friends; they are our family.

Through the support of our Village Tavern Family, our staff and our guests have helped keep us going.  We’re still working hard to navigate this difficult time, but we realize we are the lucky ones.

We don’t take this for granted. We are overwhelmed with gratitude. This series is one small step in our pursuit of making a positive difference.

Over the next several months we will be featuring wines from independent, family-owned wineries. These wines have little, if any, retail exposure, as they are not generally sold in grocery stores.  The lion share of their business comes from restaurants. We believe this is one way we can help.

Each glass and bottle sold helps support two companies working hard to continue doing what we love. We hope you’ll raise a glass in support.


Support by Getting Social.

Not all support can be served at the restaurant. One of the easiest ways to support any business is to like, follow and engage with them on social media. So, let’s get social!
