WOW Wine Tasting


This Thursday, November 29 from 7-9 p.m. at Table Wine, Asheville’s only wine store dedicated to stocking, promoting and selling wines from small, family owned and operated wineries from all parts of the world.  $10/person………$8 for Grape Nuts gets you a taste of 10 incredible wines, bread and cheese.

Juice Wine Purveyors stocks some of the hardest to get, most sought after, mailing list only wines in North Carolina, and local rep John O’Shea wants to pop some of these open for you to try.  There’s no catch here – you can come by and try a few or all of them and place your orders if you like the wines.

All of the wines will be offered at a 20% discount by the bottle, and orders can be placed that night.  Wines will arrive the following Thursday, with plenty of time to spare before the holidays.  We’ll also have a nice spread of cheeses, meats and bread for you to cleanse your palate with.  Trust us folks, this is a great opportunity to “try before you buy” some incredible wines for the holidays.

2. 2010 Luc Morlet Chardonnay “Ma Douce” Sonoma Coast – Luc Morlet was the longtime winemaker at Peter Michael where he crafted amazingly rich, complex and ageworthy Chardonnays.  He’s still doing it, just under his own label now.  600 cases produced.

3. 2011 Failla Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast – Another wine from Ehren Jordan.  Some of you might remember the Couloir wines from a tasting we did w/John some time back – Ehren also makes those also.  This is one of the hottest Sonoma-based Chardonnay and Pinot Noir producers out there at the moment.
