There’s this saying that curiosity killed the cat. We’re not falling for it. We think curiosity was framed.
We believe something different. We believe that curiosity gives you life.
Or at least a life with enough fun that it’s simply more worth living.
At The Carriage, our goal is to spark your curiosity, fill your belly, and over- flow your cup with happiness. And some really good wine.
We curate sips and bites for winos and foodies, and other curious folks.
Wine, craft beer, cheese, specialty grocery, friendly faces, and good times.
What more could you want?
Whether you’re here for a nibble and a glass of wine with a friend, or roaming for something inspiring for tonight’s dinner at home, we’re here to guide you on your next palatable journey.
And, just like our favorite, Ina Garten, we’ll be here to greet you with a drink in our hand, a warm smile on our face, and great music for a healthy dose of toe-tapping. Because that’s how it’ll all get off to a fun start.
MEET THE FAM
Here at The Carriage we're one big, happy, and slightly eccentric family of winos. Get to know a few of the friendly faces of some of the folks who call The Carriage home and be sure to stop in soon to say hello and spend a little time with us!
