Friday Winedown – Low Production California Wines

Asheville wine lovers unite!  When John O’Shea from Juice Wine Purveyors comes to Table Wine, he doesn’t kid around!  He brings us some of the finest, small production, hard-to-get wines from California and he’s packing some serious heat this week.  He’ll join us this Friday, November 16 from 4 to 7, and you’re invited to join in the fun.  It’s just $5 to taste seven super tasty wines or it’s free if you’re a Grape Nut!

From one of the hottest Chardonnays being made in California to exceptional Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir to otherworldly, 94 point rated Meritage, this is a tasting you really don’t want to miss.  Join us this Friday to “winedown” and get your week end off to a fine start.
