Perfect Grilling Wines Tasting at Table Wine in Asheville, North Carolina.

Top Value Grilling Wines - Free on Fridays Wine Tasting

Friday, April 12th from 4-7pm – Join us Friday for a free wine tasting starring some top value grilling wines. These are guaranteed to make your grilled meats, fish, and vegetables taste even better!

If you’re like me, one of your favorite things to do during the warmer months is grilling………….and drinking wine of course! From steaks and chops to fish and veggies, I love the charred, smoky flavors that grilling contributes to foods. Join us to sample three of our favorite “grillmates,” aka wines that are perfect for pairing with foods off the grill, but also totally enjoyable while you are grilling said foods! Up first, it’s a crisp and delicious dry rosé from Corisca. I love sipping on this one while I’m grilling, and I also love it with grilled fish and asparagus too. Next in the lineup is a juicy and spicy, Grenache-driven Cotes du Rhone that is ideal for barbecued chicken or pork slathered in peppery barbecue sauce. To finish, we’ll got with an Old Vine Zinfandel, one of the all time great grilling wines. From babyback ribs to thick cut steaks, this one hits the spot every time. Stop by, taste, learn, and save big on all of the featured tasting wines. Can’t make it by, but want to place an order? Just email me at

1. 2016 Vetriccie Ile de Beauté Rosé (Corsica, France) – The new vintage of Vetriccie’s dry rosé is as crisp and refershing as ever. A blend of native Corsican grapes (40% Niellucciu, 30% Sciaccarellu, 15% Grenache, 15% Merlot), it’s light, aromatic, and perfect for seafood, fish, and green vegetables.

2. 2015 Finca Sophenia Malbec Reserve (Mendoza, Argentina) – We’ve been longtime fans of Finca Sophenia, and the new vintage of their Malbec is another winner. From high altitude vineyards in the Tupungato sub-region of Mendoza, all fruit is hand harvested and aged for 12 months in French and American oak. The resulting wine is a steak’s best friend! Ripe, yet restrained, this one offers up notes of punch red berries, violet, and oak spice.

3. 2014 Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel (Lodi, California) – For six generations, Klinker Brick has been family owned and operated, and they are one of the qualitative leaders of the vast Lodi AVA. I recently tasted the wines with Farrah Felten-Jolley, daughter of the owners of Klinker Brick, and I was deeply impressed. Their Old Vine Zinfandel comes from 16 different vineyard blocks with an average age of 86 years. Deep, layered, rich and opulent, this one of my go-to wines when grilling steaks or chops.
