Taylor Cash has been the owner of Taylor’s Wine Shop, located in North Raleigh, since 1980. Taylor and his wife, Gail, purchased it together and operated it until Gail passed in January 2011. Taylor’s son, Ben, then joined the business and the two operate it together now with the help of Taylor’s daughter, Melissa, who manages the marketing and online side of the business from her home in Florida. Taylor says the community has supported his family for almost thirty-seven years and that he’s always wanted to give back, so he served on the Board of the AE Finley YMCA for over ten years. In addition, Taylor served for eight years as the Board Chair of the We Build People annual campaign that raised over four million dollars for children and families in the Raleigh community. For the last two years, Taylor has served on the Foundation of Hope Board, an organization which offers grant funding for research to help find cures for mental illness.
