A party atmosphere is expected at the grand opening of La Bouteille, a beer and wine shop, Thursday, 5-7 p.m., at The Depot, 300 Randall Street, Suite B.

Free beer and wine tasting, hors d’oeuvres, a ribbon cutting, special offers like mix-and-match six packs of wine for $60, and more than 200 brands of wine and 100 craft beers will be showcased.

Shelly Block owns the Greer store and her first venture into the business was in Tryon, N.C. The Greer store is open Monday through Saturday.

“There are all kinds of beer and wine you won’t find in grocery stores,” Katie Ellenburg said. “And the prices are good.”

All the shelves, constructed by Block's brother-in-law, are stocked. Bottle Tree craft beer produced by her husband, Fred, is among the inventory.

The significance of the Thursday’s event is La Bouteille now fills the entire Depot retail block less than one year after there were at least four storefront vacancies. Joining La Bouteille are The Image Forge, WorldWide Staffing, Platform42, Salutem Organic Massage and Carolina Vine & Branch.

Kim Berry’s oil and vinegar store, which opened April 6, bookends La Bouteille creating a unique shopping experience near the lower part of the Trade Street central business district.

The Blue Ridge Brewing Company is weeks away from opening at 300 Trade Street, virtually extending that part of downtown one block. Workers were at the site Wednesday.
