Table Wine Asheville - Small Vineyards Imports Tasting

545 Wine Tasting - Try 5 Wines For $5 - Friday, June 21st., 2013 - 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.

If you live in Asheville and love Italian wines, you should definitely make Table Wine a destination this Friday, June 21. We’ll be sampling out the latest batch of wines to arrive from Small Vineyards, an importer whose philosophy on picking out wines is very much in common with ours:

“Every bottle of Small Vineyards wine bears our gold seal, signifying that the wine is hand-harvested, earth friendly, and from a family owned estate. By importing wines from small estates, we are helping to protect unique grape varietals, local winemaking styles, and preserve a special way of life.”

If you’ve ever heard us preaching the gospel of small family estate wines, this should sound quite familiar. If you haven’t, just realize that when it comes to wine, 9 times out of 10, smaller is better. We like the folks who like to get dirty in their vineyards, who subscribe to the philosophy that good wine is made in the vineyard, and who apply minimal “treatments” to their wines in the cellar. If you compare wine to any other agricultural crop, which one tastes better, the one that comes from the small farmer who sells his crop at the local farmer’s market or the one that comes from the large factory farm that gets sold at the grocery store? Hopefully you prefer the tomato you buy at the tailgate market over the one at the grocery store…………..the same premise applies to wine. Don’t believe us? Come taste for yourself this Friday.
