The North Branch Wine

Here at The North Branch Cafe we offer the unique opportunity to try wines by 1oz, 2oz or 5oz pours with our Enomatic wine service. We encourage a sense of adventure and a great chance to taste and compare wines you might not have tried before.   

Our wine selection changes regularly. See our current wine menu below.  Ask us for recommendations on pairings with some of our local food offerings!  One of our joys and aspirations is to find those pairings that really "pop", and invite you to share the experience!

Also, create your own wine flight!  Choose 2 oz portions of any 3 wines and take $1 off of the total!
