We stumbled upon a new charmer…all handsome, warm and well-versed in our favorite fermentaitonsconveniently ensconced on Main Street.  Foxcroft Wine Company pretty much had us at hello!  We had been briefly introduced in Charlotte a couple of years back (owner Conrad Hunter has two locations there), but now that we can visit right here in Greenville on the regular, good luck luring us away!

A wine shop with some major bonuses

Foxcroft offers a plethora of ways to enjoy the juice.  Looking for a great bottle for your drinking pleasure at home?  Take a stroll through the place and pick a bottle or two (or go all in with a case).  Want to enjoy a bite and a bottle?  Grab one off the shelf, have a seat, order a nibble or two, and enjoy…sans the typical restaurant mark-up.  Can’t make up your mind?  They have 40+ wines on tap, ready for some sippin!  You can choose to have just a taste, or a half-glass, or go for a full glass if one really tickles your fancy.

The Chappellet “Mountain Cuvée

This particular vin is a beautiful blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot which  if you ask us– is practically perfect in every way…the Mary Poppins of wine! It is smooth and well-rounded on the palate and has some weight without being too heavy. This one is a great choice to sip while enjoying some of the fabulous nibbles Foxcroft has to offer.

Crémant de Bourgogne 

We are always downright delighted to sip on some bubbles. This sparkling gem left us wanting more…so we did…just sayin. A flirty, frisky, fresh option that is not too sweet and just the right amount of dry, the Cremont was the perfect glass of fizz.  We would pick this bubbly when it’s time to celebrate something special…but, frankly, we would pick it when celebratin’ nothing at all!  It’s a winner any which way you look at it!

Frank Family Chardonnay 

We are sending a most appreciative thank you out to the Frank Family for creating this delightful white wine. While a Chardonnays can often be acidic and have too much of a “tooth”, this one has the exact opposite taste. It is creamy, mild and buttery, making it the perfect option for an easy afternoon beverage.

One of everything please

Here’s the real bell-ringer…Foxcroft is far more than just a “wine company.”  The menu is to-die-for!  We were blown away by the choices coming out of the kitchen and had a heck of a time deciding what to try.  We went for the ricotta and truffle fries (our guilty pleasure), but could have ordered one of everything.  And the beautiful part of it all…the menu is especially designed to be enjoyed with just about any bottle in the place…no special pairings needed.  Their philosophy – “eat what you like, drink what you like”. 

Open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am – 11 pm, and on Sunday from 5-10 pm, Foxcroft is ready and waiting for you!
