South Asheville’s Best Free Wine Tasting

We’ll focus on some awesome wine values from Spain, Italy and France this Saturday.  These are all best sellers at the store, and they’re all very affordable and delicious.  The tasting goes from 2 to 5, and it’s free, and we’ll have Tom Kousky with his local, organic vegetables in the house from 2 to 3:30.  We hope to see you.

1. Borsao White – The simple title of this wine doesn’t do it justice, as it’s a pretty complex little number for the money.  100% Macabeo, aka Viura that sees a bit of oak aging, it is all citrus with a light toasty, vanilla back note.

$4/glass

2. I Stefanini Soave “Il Selese” – This was one of the most popular wines when we first opened, but it’s kind of settled down.  I would venture to guess that trend will change after this Saturday……..this is still a steal and absolutely delicious.  Composed almost entirely of Garganega, this is a rich white wine with nice peach, honeyed citrus and almond notes.

3. Perazetta Sangiovese – What else do you say about 90 point rated, $12.99 Sangiovese from Tuscany?  Not much – stop by, try it, buy it, get a Marco’s pizza on the way home and call me in the morning.

$12.99/bottle
$6/glass

4. Iché Les Heretiques – Here is the southern France countryside in a bottle.  A blend of Carignan and Syrah, this is dark fruited and very “winey” with notes of black cherry, earth, herbes de Provence and peppery spice.  Drink liberally with grilled meats.
