Super Saturday Wine Tasting at Table Wine in Asheville, North Carolina.

Classic Wines of the Euro-Zone – Super Saturday Wine Tasting

Saturday, July 29th from 2-5 pm – For our next Super Saturday Wine Tasting, we’re pouring 10 classic wines of the Euro-Zone with Ryan Brazell and Kate Stamps of Rise Over Run Wine!  This is one of our favorite new distributors/importers, and we invite you to stop by and check out a bunch of new arrivals from France, Spain, Austria and Germany.  Just $5 to try all ten wines or free if you’re a Grape Nut!

“Near Master of Wine” and Asheville native Ryan Brazell started Rise Over Run just a couple of months ago, and we are huge fans.  Simply put, this guy has an incredible palate, and the wines he has selected are some of the most exciting we’ve tasted all summer.  After extensive travels throughout Europe, Ryan and Kate have put together a wonderful portfolio of wines from small growers and producers.  We’re super excited to share them with you.  We’ll pour you wines from all over the Euro-Zone, but we’ll focus on the classics………..with a couple of weirdly wonderful wines as well.  From incredible Albarino and Gruner Veltliner to sensual Pinot Noir and boisterous Bandol Rouge, this is a tasting you don’t want to miss.

The Wines

1. 2014 Domaine de Menard Cotes de Gascogne Blanc (Southwestern France) – The white wines of the Gascogne region are some of the best values in the world, and this one is a prime example.  A blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc, it is very reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc.  Fresh, crisp, and packed with tangy/tart apple, citrus, and green herb nuances, it’s hard to drink just one glass.
Tasting Price: $10.79 on mixed 3-packs | $10.19 on mixed 6-packs | $9.59 on mixed cases

2. 2012 Fattoria del Cerro Rosso di Montepulciano (Tuscany, Italy) – Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media called this “one of the best Tuscan wines in its price range and a real overachiever.”  He’s right!  Trust us folks, you will not get a more authentically styled Sangiovese-based red wine than this.  Galloni goes on to say the wine offers an “exotic mélange of dark red and black cherries, leather, smoke, incense, spices and smoke.”  He’s right again!  Don’t miss your chance to sample one of the best Tuscan red wine values in the store.  89 points Vinous Media
Tasting Price: $13.49 on mixed 3-packs | $12.74 on mixed 6-packs | $11.99 on mixed cases

3. 2012 Enrique Mendoza Monastrell “La Tremenda” (Alicante, Spain) – Luis Gutierrez of The Wine Advocate says that for “an entry-level this has superb quality and an incredible price tag.”  He goes on to suggest purchasing this one by the case.  We concur 100%!  The wine is based entirely on Monastrelll (aka Mourvedre) and it thrives in the warm climate of Southern Spain.  Ripe, full bodied, rich and offering velvety-soft texture, this wine is a real overachiever.  91+ points The Wine Advocate
