French wines do not have to be expensive to be delicious, and this free wine tasting will prove that point. Stop by for Asheville’s top free wine tasting this Friday — you’ll be glad you did!
People often ask me why there are so many great French wines that don’t cost a lot of money. It’s simple — many French vignerons have been at it for hundreds of years and they own their land. At least that’s the type of wine we champion at Table Wine. Additionally, wine is viewed as a daily “foodstuff” in France. Thus, every bottle can’t cost $20+. Hopefully, this is making sense to you. If not, stop by and we’ll expand upon this topic at this week’s free wine tasting. Stop by, taste, learn, and save big every Friday at Table Wine.
All of the featured tasting wines are being offered at 20% off by the bottle! To take advantage of the savings, all sales must be tendered by the end of tasting day.
