Asheville's Best Free Wine Tasting

Free on Fridays Wine Tasting - Delicious Domestic Wines

Free on Fridays Wine Tasting this Friday, June 3rd from 4 to 7 p.m. showcasing some new and delicious domestic wines! Trust me folks, you don’t want to miss this tasting as we will pull the corks on some really great new wines from California. We’ll start with a “Rombauer lookalike” at a fraction of the price — translated, that means a rich, creamy and buttery Chardonnay. Next up, it’s a stellar and fuller styled Pinot Noir from California’s Russian River Valley that doesn’t break the bank. We’ll finish up with a new Cabernet Franc/Gamay blend from El Dorado County that tastes like it came straight out of France’s Loire Valley. Stop by, taste, learn and save up to 20% off on all of the tasting wines.

All of the featured tasting wines are on sale the day of the tasting: take 10% off if you mix any 3, 15% off if you mix any 6, or 20% off if you mix any 12.

The Wines

1. 2014 Custard Chardonnay (Sonoma Valley, California) – The name pretty much sums it up! From a single vineyard owned by the Sebastiani family located in Carneros, this Chardonnay gets the “full treatment.” Barrel fermented, full malolactic, and aged in French oak for 6 months, the resulting wine is super rich, creamy and toasty, finishing with a strong note of vanilla bean. Rombauer lovers will love this one!

2. 2014 Hook and Ladder Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley, California) – Vintage 2014 has been proclaimed as the greatest Pinot Noir vintage California has every experienced. Marked by warm and dry conditions, grapes got maximum hang time with litte or no adverse weather conditions. The resulting crop provided for incredible Pinots and this is one of the top values of the vintage. Rich, silky and laced with ripe red fruits, spices, and soft tannin, this will please many palates.

3. 2012 Bebame Red Wine (El Dorado County, California) – I am a bit smitten with this new wine made by veteran Steve Edmunds from the rugged vineyards of El Dorado County. Bebame means “drink me” in Spanish, and this blend of Cabernet Franc (93%) and Gamay (7%) is all about pure, clean and easy flavors. For fans of French wines like Beaujolais and Chinon, this might be your new jam. Enjoy!
