Lynn and I recently headed south to Charleston to pay a visit to one of our favorite suppliers, distributors, and importers.  Advintage Distributing was started in 2003 by the passionate Henri Gabriel, a super cool dude who loves wine just as much as I do.  He has truly built a very special portfolio of wines, and he treated us to a wonderful tasting at their temperature controlled, state of the art warehouse.  I returned to Asheville pumped about the new wines I tasted, and I can’t wait to share them with you.  We’ll be pouring quite the smorgasbord of wines — from crisp summer whites and an epic dry rosé to one of the best Cotes du Rhone deals of all time, this promises to be one of the best tastings of the summer.  Oh yeah, we’re also pouring a really special treat in the form of Wine #10 — it’s one of California’s top names in Red Zinfandel…….trust me, you don’t want to miss this tasting!

2. 2016 Domaine des Diables “Bonbon” Rosé (Provence, France): If you were a fan of the MIP rosé last year, you are going to lose your mind when you taste this one.  From the same estate that makes the MIP, I opted for this one this year because it is amazing.  One of the most intensely aromatic rosés I’ve ever encountered, this one smells and tastes of carmelized grapefruit, gooseberry, mixed red fruits, and pungent green herbs.  Full bodied and creamy in texture, it’s a perfect pick for the summer.

Top Value Grilling Wines – Free on Fridays Wine Tasting

Friday, April 12th from 4-7pm – Join us Friday for a free wine tasting starring some top value grilling wines.  These are guaranteed to make your grilled meats, fish, and vegetables taste even better!

If you’re like me, one of your favorite things to do during the warmer months is grilling………….and drinking wine of course!  From steaks and chops to fish and veggies, I love the charred, smoky flavors that grilling contributes to foods.  Join us to sample three of our favorite “grillmates,” aka wines that are perfect for pairing with foods off the grill, but also totally enjoyable while you are grilling said foods!  Up first, it’s a crisp and delicious dry rosé from Corisca.  I love sipping on this one while I’m grilling, and I also love it with grilled fish and asparagus too.  Next in the lineup is a juicy and spicy, Grenache-driven Cotes du Rhone that is ideal for barbecued chicken or pork slathered in peppery barbecue sauce.  To finish, we’ll got with an Old Vine Zinfandel, one of the all time great grilling wines.  From babyback ribs to thick cut steaks, this one hits the spot every time.  Stop by, taste, learn, and save big on all of the featured tasting wines. Can’t make it by, but want to place an order?  Just email me at josh@tablewineasheville.com.

1. 2016 Vetriccie Ile de Beauté Rosé (Corsica, France) – The new vintage of Vetriccie’s dry rosé is as crisp and refershing as ever.  A blend of native Corsican grapes (40% Niellucciu, 30% Sciaccarellu, 15% Grenache, 15% Merlot), it’s light, aromatic, and perfect for seafood, fish, and green vegetables.
Tasting Price: $9.89/bottle | $9.34 in mixed six packs | $8.79 in mixed cases


2. 2015 Finca Sophenia Malbec Reserve (Mendoza, Argentina) – We’ve been longtime fans of Finca Sophenia, and the new vintage of their Malbec is another winner.  From high altitude vineyards in the Tupungato sub-region of Mendoza, all fruit is hand harvested and aged for 12 months in French and American oak.  The resulting wine is a steak’s best friend!  Ripe, yet restrained, this one offers up notes of punch red berries, violet, and oak spice.

Try 3 For Free Wine Tasting – Ben’s Picks

Saturday, April 15th from 2-5 p.m. – Join us as Josh gives up his position at the tasting bar and lets long time employee Ben Fort take over for the day.  Ben will taste you on three of his favorite wines.

When Josh asked me to pick the wines for Saturday’s free wine tasting, I immediately knew which wines we’d pour as my picks.  We’ll start with a lovely white, beautifully balancing rich fruit and refreshing acidity, that always hits the spot especially on a day where I grab some Chinese take-out on the way home.  Next is the “entry level” field blend from my favorite producer in the Langhe, G. D. Vajra.  It is quite literally the family’s house wine and a perfect pair with some of my favorite foods from salmon or roast chicken to mushroom risotto.  Finally, we’ll taste the current vintage of a wine I’ve sought out every year since their appearance at #10 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 list back in 2008.  Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel is excellent time and again as the accompaniment to my Grandmother’s pulled pork recipe or spending time with the best of friends telling (mostly) true stories of years gone by.  There’s much more to each of these stories so stop by, taste, learn, and save; this and every Saturday at Table Wine.  Can’t make it by, but want to place an order?  Just email us at josh@tablewineasheville.com.

1. 2015 Tenuta Sant’Antonio Scaia Bianco (Veneto, Italy) – After inheriting their Father’s 20 Hectare estate, the four Castagnedi brothers purchased another 30 hectares of hillside vineyards on which they grow fruit for their Scaia wines. All four brothers are actively involved as they grow grapes with low yields, which they hand harvest, resulting in grapes that require minimal intervention during the winemaking process.
Tasting Price: $11.69 in mixed 3-packs | $11.04 in mixed 6-packs | $10.39 in mixed cases

2. 2014 G. D. Vajra Langhe Rosso (Piemonte, Italy) – G. D. Vajra is a true family estate winery with parents and children working collaboratively to produce wines of character. This is the wine they describe much as a soccer team, with different grapes playing different roles in the wine much as different positions on the field make up the team.
Tasting Price: $14.29 in mixed 3-packs | $13.59 in mixed 6-packs | $12.79 in mixed cases

3. 2015 Seghesio Zinfandel (Sonoma County, California) – Since 1895 Seghesio has been essentially synonymous with Zinfandel with 300 acres of prime Sonoma County real estate under vine. Now in their 5th generation, the Seghesio family has always sought to “sustainably produce great estate wines from vineyards the family first tended in the late 1800’s.”

Free On Fridays Wine Tasting – Will’s Picks

Friday, April 14th from 4-7pm – Join us this Friday for a free wine tasting featuring some of new Table Wine employee Will Russell’s top picks.  

In case you didn’t know, I joined Table Wine 2 months back after a long stint as the wine buyer at Greenlife/Whole Foods.  I am so happy to be working with Josh and Ben and cherish the opportunity to increase my wine knowledge and share it with you.  I’ll start the tasting with one of my favorites, the new vintage of Domaine Salvard Cheverny Blanc.  This lovely expression of Sauvignon Blanc with just a touch of Chardonnay is one of the wines that first drew me to the Loire. Next up, the new vintage of Bodegas Muga Rosado is in fine form this year.  With great richness balanced by zesty acidity, I enjoy this one especially with lighter fish courses or spicy shellfish preparations.  One of the first wines I tasted with Josh when I joined the team was the Torre de Golban Ribera del Duero Reserva — I knew I’d found my new home!  We’ll finish with this big, structured Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero.  There’s so much more to each of the wines than words can purvey.  Stop by, taste, learn, and save every Friday at Table Wine.  Can’t make it by, but want to place an order?  Just email us at josh@tablewineasheville.com.

1. 2016 Domaine du Salvard Cheverny Blanc  (Loire Valley, France) – I love drinking wines from the Loire Valley.  Cheverny may be one of most underrated appellations in the Loire. It has never mounted a significant threat to the powerhouses of Sancerre nor Pouilly Fume. However, I don’t think the brothers Delaille are looking for a fight. Year after year they put their heads down and turn out spectacular, affordable wines that convey the chalk and limestone soils not far from the river banks.
Tasting Price: $15.29 in mixed 3-packs | $14.44 in mixed 6-packs | $13.59 mixed cases

2.2016 Bodegas Muga Rosado (Rioja, Spain) – If you knew me well, you might ask why I have chosen two Spanish wines, as I am a hardcore Franco-phile.  I am actually an equal opportunity drinker and happen to love roses from Rioja. Bodegas Muga is relatively new to the game in Rioja, having been founded in 1932. Their rose is a blend of 60% Garnacha, 30% Viura and 10% Tempranillo fermented in wooden vats for 15-20 days. The end result is a rich, pretty and impeccably balanced rose that smells and tastes of white peach with notes of wild strawberries.
Tasting Price: $14.39 in mixed 3-packs | $13.59 in mixed 6-packs | $12.79 in mixed case

3. 2012 Torre de Golban Ribera del Duero Reserva (Ribera del Duero, France) – I’ve always leaned toward Ribera del Duero for my favorite expressions of Tempranillo. Torre de Golban is a side venture of the famed Dominio de Atauta. The high altitude and hot, dry climate make for wines of great concentration and depth. It spends 18 months in French oak and 2 years in the bottle prior to release. It is big, with strong dark fruits, a firm backbone of integrated tannin and subtle notes of cedar and tobacco. I want a thick, juicy, grilled bone in ribeye with this one.
Tasting Price: $22.49 in mixed 3-packs | $21.24 in mixed 6-packs | $19.99 in mixed cases
Special Wine of the Week Price: Just $18.99/bottle on your solid 6-pack!  Drink now – 2022.

Friday, April 7th from 4-7 p.m. – We’re pulling the corks on some rocking good wines this Friday and you’re invited!  Stop by the store to sample the new vintage of Barnard Griffin’s award winning dry rose followed by an honest and easy-going Barbera.  And we’ll finish up with the new release of Alto Moncayo’s massive Veraton Garnacha — we won’t pour this one again, so don’t miss your chance to try this “Gargantuan Garnacha!”  It’s guaranteed to be a rocking good time featuring some rocking good wines! All you have to do is stop by, taste the wines, stock up and save big!  Can’t make it by, but want to place an order?  Just email us at josh@tablewineasheville.com.

1. 2016 Barnard Griffin Sangiovese Rosé  (Columbia Valley, Washington) – It’s back and it’s another fantastic wine from Rob Griffin.  Taste for yourself why Barnard Griffin Rosés have won eleven Best of Class and numerous gold awards at prestigious wine competitions since our first Rosé release in 2002.  100% Sangiovese fermented completely dry in stainless steel, this will make fans of this wine happy.  Bursting with ripe raspberry, strawberry, and orange zest, it is ripe yet bursting with refreshing acidity.  
Tasting Price: $12.59 in mixed 3-packs | $11.04 in mixed 6-packs | $11.89 in mixed cases

2. 2014 Bricco dei Tati Barbera (Piemonte, Italy) – Italian native Emanuele Gaiarin and his American-born wife Mary Beth purchased this rustic estate in the hills of Langhe in 2006.  With it came an old farm house, some old vineyards, 8 large cement fermenting tanks, and a 100 year old grape press.  The couple make honest, natural wines that are both charming and delicious, and their Barbera has become a customer favorite.  Light, low in tannin, and popping with bright red fruit and subtle earth notes, it is an absolute joy to drink.
Tasting Price: $9.89 in mixed 3-packs | $9.34 in mixed 6-packs | $8.79 in mixed cases

3. 2014 Alto Moncayo Veraton (Campo de Borja, Spain) – Hit the reset button!  We’re moving into a whole new breed of wine with this one!  A joint venture between importer Jorge Ordonez, Bodegas Borsao, and winermaker Chris Ringland, this is Grenache on some serious steroids.  From 30 to 50 year old vines, the grapes are picked late and then aged for 16-18 months in primarily new French and American oak.  The result is a wine that will coat every square inch of your palate with flavors of ripe boysenberry, blueberry, vanilla, and exotic spice.
Tasting Price: $26.99 in mixed 3-packs | $25.49 in mixed 6-packs | $23.99 in mixed cases

1. 2015 Joao Portugal Ramon Alvarinho (Vinho Verde, Portugal) – Don’t get this confused with a simple Vinho Verde.  Yes, it’s from the same region, but this of a completely different breed!  100% Alvarinho from a single vineyard planted on rocky/granitic soils and seeing a touch of French oak, this is rich, exotic, spicy and creamy white wine.  I know that description sounds like Chardonnay, but it’s not like that either.  Come taste it!
Tasting Price: $17.99 on mixed 3-packs | $16.99 on mixed 6-packs | $15.99 on mixed cases

2. 2016 Ostatu Rosado (Rioja, Spain) – This is a perennial customer and staff favorite from one of our favorite Rioja producers.  The 2016 is again delicious!  A blend of 70% Tempranillo and 30% Garnacha from some of the estate’s oldest and highest elevation vineyards, it is fermented in stainless steel and bottled soon after.  Tart, crisp and laced with lime, white cherry, strawberry and floral notes, this is super refreshing and ideally served with a nice chill.

Try 3 For Free Wine Tasting – Top West Coast Wine Values

Saturday, March 4th from 2-5pm — Stop by the store (directions here) for a free wine tasting featuring some top West Coast wine values!  These are all great values from the start, but we’re running a one-day sale on all of them.  With the discounted pricing, we’re offering all of these wines at the best prices in the country!

It’s not hard to find inexpensive West Coast wines, but many of them are less than inspiring.  We dig a little bit deeper at Table Wine because uninspiring wine don’t do it for us or our customers.  Join us on Saturday to try some truly compelling West Coast wines that won’t break the bank.  Up first, it’s one of California’s top and most distinctive Sauvignon Blancs — tasting more like a creation of France’s Loire Valley, this is a staff and customer favorite.  Second in the lineup is an Oregon Pinot Gris from one of the state’s top up and comers — the wine sees a bit of skin contact and pours a slight pinkish/copper hue and offers up a more complex bouquet and palate than most Pinot Gris’.  Last, but not least, it’s good old Elk Cove Pinot Noir — we bought a little bit too much of their 2014, but no worries. This one is drinking like a dream right now and we’re offering it up at the best price in the country for one day only.

1. 2015 Smith Story Wine Cellars Sauvignon Blanc (Sonoma County, California) – Alison Smith and Eric Story are the husband and wife team behind Smith Story Wine Cellars, and we firmly believe that they make one of the best Sauvignon Blancs in the state.  Zesty, crunchy, and laced with complex mineral notes, this is California Sauvignon Blanc meets Sancerre.

2. 2015 Omero Cellars Pinot Gris (Willamette Valley, Oregon) – Many of you love their Chardonnay…….wait until you taste their slightly pink Pinot Gris.  The brief skin to juice contact gives this wine a little more color than most Pinot Gris’ along with more complex, savory and umami notes.  A brilliant wine to serve with grilled salmon, sushi, or even ramen (real ramen), we also enjoy it without any food at all.

3. 2014 Elk Cove Vineyards Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley, Oregon) – In case you haven’t heard, Vintage 2014 in Oregon was a great one — Wine Spectator scored the vintage 97 points!  When you add that to the fact that Elk Cove is one of the most respected veteran producers of the region, you have the formula for great wine.  This is classic Elk Cove Pinot — richer and fuller in style, but with silky tannin, it offers up an incredible mix of ripe cherry, blueberry and plum fruit buttressed by more complex notes of spice, cedar and black tea.  Perfect for drinking with grilled salmon, chicken or pork, it is also delicious with nothing more than a glass and a good friend.
