Free Italian Wine Tasting - Table Wine - Asheville - North Carolina

Northern Italian Wine and Food Experience

Our last small plate food and wine pairing was a huge hit, and we’re extremely excited about the next one. All of the dishes will be prepared by Les and Barb Norman again……….those of you who were with us last time can attest to the fact that they know how to cook extremely well and we know how to pick out great wines to go with their culinary creations. Our next wine and food event will focus on the wines and good of Northern Italy, including the regions of Piemonte and the Veneto. The event takes place on Thursday, April 19 at Table Wine beginning at 7:00 and going until about 9:00. The cost is $60/person or $50 if you’re a Grape Nut and this price is all inclusive.

For these events, the store is transformed into a restaurant of sorts with full table and wine service so that you get to actually enjoy each course with the selected wine. The goal is to educate you about the way wine and food work together, but we also promise that you’ll have a good time. We’ve put together a great small plate menu paired with a wonderful selection of wines. Each plate is accompanied by a 2 ounce pour of each wine, and we promise you that you’ll leave sufficiently full, happy and more educated about the way that wine and food work together.
