2014 has been another great year for Table Wine, and we’ve found more great, new, and exciting wines this year than ever.  For our last seated tasting of the year, 28 lucky wine lovers will get to taste ten of our top wine finds of the year in the comfort of the Table Wine Classroom. Trust us, it wasn’t easy to pick the wines out, but somehow we managed. As is always the case, the wines will be available for purchase at the best prices in town.

The tasting is set to take place, Wednesday, December 3rd from 7-9 p.m. and the cost is just $25/person or $20 if you’re a Grape Nut.  We’ll have bread, cheese and other light palate cleansers for you to nibble on between tastes.  To pre-pay and reserve your seat, call us at 828.505.8588. Cancellations made within 72 hours of the event will receive a full refund.

The Wines

1. NV Alla Costiera Prosecco Extra Dry (Veneto, Italy): The best Prosecco we’ve ever stocked at the store.

2. 2013 Paterno E Corzano Corzanello Bianco (Tuscany, Italy): From a tiny, family owned, certified organic estate in Chianti, this wild white blend is exotic, aromatic, and super tasty!

3. 2013 Domaine Lafage Cuvée Centenaire (Roussillon, France): The Wine Advocate called this one of the greatest white wine values on the planet.  We agree!

3. 2013 Paul Hobbs “CrossBarn” Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast, California): Paul Hobbs is one of our country’s greatest wine producers and the new vintage of his “entry level” Chardonnay is better than ever.

5. 2011 ROCO Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley, Oregon): Rollin Soles is a living legend of Oregon wine.  He founded Argyle Winery, but now he focuses most of his time on his own vineyards and ROCO is the result.  His 2011 is singing right now!

6. 2011 Thelema Mountain Red (Stellenbosch, South Africa): Thelema is one of South Africa’s unofficial First Growths, and their Mountain Red is one of the great red wine values on the planet.

7. 2012 Apaltagua Carmenere Reserva (Colchagua Valley, Chile): We’re predicting that Carmenere is going to the next big thing.  Like Malbec, it’s originally from Bordeaux, but it’s found a new home in South America.  The Chileans are doing incredible things with the grape and you can still find really good ones that don’t break the bank…………like this one!

8. 2012 Vega Sindoa Cabernet Sauvignon (Navarra, Spain): Cabernet from Spain?  Yep, and this is hands down one of our best Cab discoveries of the year.
