Best Free Wine Tasting - Asheville, North Carolina

Friday Wine Down - Asheville Wine Lovers Unite

Friday, April 4th, 2013 from 4 to 7 p.m. — $5/person…..Free for Grape Nuts — We’ll be joined by the super knowledgeable and friendly Richard McKinney from Tryon Distributing for the second week in a row; we had so much fun pouring and selling his wines last week end that we figured it couldn’t hurt to have him back for an encore. He stopped by Wednesday with over 15 wines to try and we picked the top five to pour for this tasting. It’s going to be an “All California Affair,” with a great mix of good values along with some “special occasion” bottles. It’s a great lineup, and it’s always a great time. Stop by, “wine down” your week, and get your week end off to a good start.
