Yep, you read that right. We’re doing all whites and dry roses at our next Super Saturday Wine Tasting. And every single one of the wines comes from a small, family-run estate. With spring in full bloom and summer just around the corner, this is your chance to taste, learn, save, and stock up on some of the best warm-weather wines we can find. Trust me folks, this will be one of the best wine tastings to go down in Asheville all spring and summer. Don’t miss it!
All of the featured tasting wines are 20% off by the bottle on tasting day.
1. 2017 Chateau de la Selve Maguelonne Rose (Coteaux de l’Ardeche, France) – Talk about a wine to get the juices flowing! Chateau de la Selve is a small, certified organic/biodynamic estate, and their dry rose is fabulous. A blend of Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah, it’s spring in a glass.
2. 2017 Domaine des Diables “Le Petit Diable” (Provence, France) – This heavenly, Provencal rose is in fine form again this year. 60% Syrah, with the balance in Cinsault and Grenache, it’s fresh, dry, and super aromatic. Look for notes of red fruits, summer peach, and green herbs.
3. 2016 Domaine de Bel Air Pouilly Fume (Loire Valley, France) – Pouilly Fumes are getting harder and harder to find………and pricier! After much hunting and tasting, I found the perfect one. 100% Sauvignon Blanc, this one snaps, crackles, and pops with crisp, steely citrus and chalky, flinty minerality. YUM!
4. 2017 Domaine du Pas St. Martin Saumur Blanc “La Pierre Frite” (Loire Valley, France) – This 100% Chenin Blanc-based wine comes from old, certified organic vineyards in France’s Loire Valley. Bone-dry, yet beautifully rich and textured, the zesty acidity keeps you coming back for sip after sip.
5. 2016 Pullus Halozan (Stajerska, Slovenia) – You might remember this one as “the most dangerous white wine on the planet” from last summer. It still holds that title! Why? Because it’s a liter of white wine deliciousness. A blend of 8 different aromatic whites, it’s fresh, it smells like heaven, and it tastes even better. Just drink it!
6. 2017 Pullus Pinot Grigio Rose (Stajerska, Slovenia) – Like their Halozan, Pullus’s Pinot Grigio is dangerously drinkable. For this one, they leave the juice and skin together for a bit, and the resulting wine is slightly pink and a lot more intense than your average Pinot Grigio. Bold notes of melon, creamy peach, herbs, and more!
7. Domaine des Diables “BonBon” Rose (Provence, France) – This, my friends, is one of the most intense, aromatic, and delicious roses in the house. From extremely old vines planted in 1914, this blend of Cinsault, Syrah, and Grenache screams out of the glass with notes of raspberry, pink grapefruit, citrus zest, and more.
8. La Collina Lunaris Secco (Emilia-Romagna, Italy) – We’ll end with something fun and super refreshing. It’s 100% Malvasia and it’s somewhere in between an orange wine, a Pet Nat, and a Loire Valley Chenin Blanc with amazing cider-like notes and a purity and cleanliness that cannot be topped.
