Asheville wine lovers should mark their calendars for Wednesday, November 21 as we’ll be holding a rather large and free wine tasting at our store. From 12 to 6 p.m., you can stop by anytime and try ten, yes ten, wines we’ve selected that will make your turkey, ham and fixins’ taste even better. The tasting is free to the public!
We ask that you respect the fact that this is a tasting/sampling and not a drinking party. We expect a large crowd and we want to make sure that everyone who comes, whether they come late or early, gets a chance to try all of the wines. Thus, we ask that everyone limit themselves to one or two tastes of each of the wines. You are always welcome to buy any bottle in the store and consume it with your friends and/or family.
Prices range from $10 to $20
