Best wine tasting - Table Wine - Asheville, North Carolina

Pinot Family Reunion Wine Tasting - Free Saturday Tasting - Saturday, April 6th., 2013 - 2 to 5 pm

Join us each and every Saturday at our tasting bar to taste a great batch of “Tuesday Night Wines”. These are affordable and delicious wines that you can drink any night of the week with or without food. We’re here to help you learn about and understand wine, not to make your feel illegitimate. Leave your worries at the door because it’s always fun and friendly at Table Wine.

For this week’s tasting, we’ll be exploring the Pinot family of wines. Science has yet to prove which of the grapes was the “Mother Clone”, but whether it be Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc or Pinot Noir, they are all more closely “related” than you probably know. We’ll sample a richer fruited Oregon Pinot Gris followed by a pink Pinot Grigio (yes, you read that right!). For the red portion of the tasting, we’ll try a classic California Pinot Noir as well as an Italian version of the grape, where they call it Pinot Nero. Come taste, learn and enjoy yourselves at Table Wine every Saturday.
