Spring and Summer Sparkling Wines- Free on Fridays Wine Tasting

Friday, May 19th from 4-7pm – Stop by Table Wine in South Asheville for a free wine tasting of some awesome spring and summer sparkling wines.  This is your chance to try the 2015 Alla Costiera Prosecco, our new Wine of the Week and the best Prosecco we’ve ever tried!

Who said sparkling wines were just for the holidays and special occasions?  Not us!  Join us as we pour a delicious and affordable trio of bubbles from the Old World.  To start, it’s the always dependable and delicious Broadbent Vinho Verde.  A candidate for the best value porch and patio pounder out there, this year’s version is as good as ever.  Up next, it’s a bone dry, clean and “bready” Cava from Spain’s Perelada Estate.  Possessing great cleansing acidity and an overall zesty personality, this is the perfect bottle to start your weekend.  To finish, it’s the greatest Prosecco we’ve ever tried.  About 500 cases of Alla Costiera’s Prosecco are made each year, and you can certainly taste the small production craftsmanship with every sip.  Get your weekend off to a good start — stop by, taste, learn and save every Friday at Table Wine.  Can’t make it by, but want to place an order?  Just email me at josh@tablewineasheville.com.

2. 2013 Castillo Perelada “Stars” Cava Brut Nature (Emporda, Spain) – Since 1987, every summer Castillo Perelada hosts one of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe.

Sparkling Wine Tasting

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, we invite you to join us for a sparkling wine tasting this Saturday, December 27th featuring bubbles from all over the world.  From Spanish Cava and Italian Prosecco to Methode Champenoise domestic bubbles and true Champagne, you’ll get to try a bunch of delicious bubbles.  Even better, all of the wines will be on sale at great prices.

We promise it will be fun and festive and it’s our last wine tasting of 2014.  Stop by any time between 2 and 5 p.m. this Saturday, shake off the post-Christmas blues, and gear up for New Year’s Eve.  Please help us spread the word and let’s end the year in style, with the best sparkling wine tasting in Asheville.

The Wines

1. NV Delamotte Champagne Brut – Delamotte comes from the House of Salon, and in our opinion, Salon is the single greatest Champagne on the planet.  They only make Salon in great vintage year, so when they don’t make it, all of that gorgeous Grand Cru fruit goes into this bottle. We’re of the firm belief that we should start with the best, and this is one of the best non-vintage Champagnes we’ve tasted this year.

2. NV Gruet Blanc de Noirs – Yep, great Methode Champenoise sparkling wine is made in New Mexico.  Gruet has been at it since 1984 and their Blanc de Noirs is one of the great domestic bubbly values.  Elegant and focused, with creamy vanilla and apple aromas and rich yet crisp flavors of baked pear and cinnamon bread.

3. NV Avinyo Cava Brut Reserve – Avinyo is one of the great family owned and operated, estate Cava houses, and the current release is as good as ever.  A traditional blend of Macabeu, Parellada, Xarel-lo made Méthode Champénoise with 100% free run juice and aged 18 to 22 months before being disgorged, this is always one of our favorite Cavas.

4. NV Francois Montand Brut Blanc de Blancs – Francois Montand grew up in Champagne, but relocated to the Jura region (just east of Burgundy) in the 1940’s.  These days, the firm makes some of the most dependable, reliable, and honest sparkling wine in the regions.  Adhering to the methods of Champagne, this lovely blend of Ugni Blanc, Colombard, and Chardonnay is dry, tart and lightly toasty.  It makes for a great, affordable sparkling wine that is good enough to drink on its own, but also perfect for making sparkling wine cocktails.

5. NV Belstar Prosecco Extra Dry – Year in and year out, Belstar is one of the best Prosecco values on the market.  Composed entirely of Glera grapes, it is light, fragrant and refreshing with tender notes of apple, melon, pear and flowers.  With low alcohol and a friendly fruitiness, this is one to buy at least two bottles of.

6. NV Sant Evasio Brachetto d’Aqui – We’ll finish up with one of the most unique sparkling wines in the world.  Brachetto yields a very low alcohol, sweet, and lightly fizzy wine that tastes like fresh squeezed strawberry juice.  Grab a bottle of this and a box of Blue Moon Truffles and call it a night!
