High Point, NC – The Triad gains a new attraction with Nomad Wine Works, the area’s first urban micro winery, locating in downtown High Point at 432 N. Wrenn St.
The facility, which aims to open this Fall, will manufacture red and white wines, along with hard apple cider, mead, and specialty non-alcoholic drinks such as seasonal teas. The production process will occupy about half of the building, with the other half serving as a tap and tasting room.
Nomad Wine Works is the creative collaboration of David Armstrong, who owns The Brewer’s Kettle in High Point, and Aaron Sizemore, who is the co-founder of Radar Brewing in Winston-Salem.
The pair described their inspiration for the business, “we have always had a passion for the beverage industry, and with such extensive growth in the downtown, this unique concept is a great fit for the city.”
Located just behind The Dog House and the luxury apartments under construction by Peters Development on N. Main St., guests will enjoy Nomad's beverages in a modern taproom setting featuring two outdoor patios and flexible event space. Nomad Wine Works will also offer production room tours and educational wine programming.
High Point Mayor Jay Wagner shared, "We welcome Nomad Wine Works to High Point and celebrate the destination they are creating. This opening will spur even more activity in the downtown year-round."
Investing at least $225,000, Armstrong and Sizemore will upfit the property by creating patio space at the front and back entrances, redesigning the building’s façade, and decorating the inside with a fresh, contemporary aesthetic.
High Point Economic Development Director Sandy Dunbeck stated, “It's an exciting time to be in the downtown area and Nomad Wine Works will provide an experience that will bring visitors to our city from across the Triad and Carolina Core.”
Nomad Wine Works joins a growing retail area with Paddled South Brewing Co., Wine Down on Hamilton, Unwind on Main, Plank St. Tavern., Stock + Grain Assembly and Truist Point among others as neighbors. Parking will be available at the rear of the property on N. Hamilton St.
“We hope this will help drive even more growth for High Point,” shared Armstrong.
