Join us for a free wine tasting where we’ll take you on a Tour of Italy and the country’s wines.  It’s the best free wine tasting in Asheville, and you’re invited!  Just stop by — we’ve got plenty of free parking.

Of all the wine producing countries in the world, Italy produces more variety of wines than any other.  With over 1,000 grapes grown throughout the country, that should come as no surprise.  Join us as we pour you some of the country’s more unique indigenous grapes and wines, as well as some more familiar ones.  Taste, learn, and save every Friday at Table Wine.

All of the featured tasting wines are being offered at 20% off by the bottle on tasting day!  To take advantage of the savings, all sales must be tendered by the end of business on Friday, March 16th. 

Can’t make it, but want to take advantage of the savings?  Just call us at 828.505.8588 to place your order, and we can run your credit card over the phone.

1. 2016 Poderi Parpinello “Ala Blanca” Vermentino (Sardinia, Italy) – What an absolutely gorgeous white wine and a great alternative to un-oaked Chardonnay.  With intense notes of ripe apple, peach, lime, and freshly cut green herbs, this medium bodied white wine is very attractive.
Special Tasting Price: $9.59/bottle

2. 2016 Paolo Petrilli Motte del Lupo (Puglia, Italy) – Jay Murrie of Durham’s Piedmont Wine Imports brings this one to us from a small, certified organic estate based in Lucera in the heel of Italy’s boot.  It is one of the most charming red wines I’ve tasted this year.  A stainless steel fermented blend of Nero di Troia, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, and the rarely seen Bombino Bianco, it is much lighter and fresher than most Puglian reds.  Bright notes of cherry, plum, herbs and spice flow through this extreme Italian red wine value.  Yum!
Special Tasting Price: $10.39/bottle

3. 2015 Mocali Morellino di Scansano “Suberli” (Tuscany, Italy): Often referred to as “Poor Person’s Brunello,” the Morellino clone of Sangiovese yields a fuller, more intense red wine than those produced inland in Chianti.  This one comes from Mocali, a top-flight Brunello producer, and it’s sensational!  Their organic Suberli vineyard is in the coastal Maremma region and it yields a ripe, rich, and structured Tuscan red that is laced with ripe red fruits, spices, herbs, and earth notes.
Special Tasting Price: $14.39/bottle
