With spring in the air in Asheville, we have found the perfect pair of wines for sunny day sipping. They are delicious, value-priced, and every member of Team Table Wine gives them a big thumbs up.
The Face a la Mer wines come from from one of the top cooperatives in the Languedoc, and these two wines are brand new to the US. You'll have to trust us when we say that the wines punch way above their "price class."
2021 Face a la Mer Picpoul and Rose
Crisp, dry, aromatic, and perfect for sunny spring days!

Josh here: I'm excited, extremely excited! Our first dry rose offering of 2022 is live, and so is our first Picpoul special of the year. Spring is here, the sun is shining brightly, and while uncertainty might be the theme of the day, there is no doubt that this white and rose are silly good.
The white from Face a la Mer is Picpoul with a splash of Terret, and it really crushes the "$12.99 or less competition" with aromas and flavors of lime, green apple, and sea spray minerality. The rose is classic and equally enjoyable, and it's a blend of equal parts Cinsault and Grenache. Lively notes of wild strawberry, peach, and honeysuckle are alive and well in this easy-to-drink, and well-made dry rose from Southern France.
Many thanks to our friends at Advintage for bringing these fabulous wines to the Carolinas, and bigger thanks to Drew Summers for introducing these to me. I'm guessing this is a brand we will be working with for years to come.
