WINE TASTING- JUNE 10, 2016
4-7 pm @ Downtown Asheville and Black Mountain Locations
This week’s tasting will be light, fun, summery, and delicious. Staring with an absolutely lovely Italian white that boast flavors of wildflowers and crisp apples with a distinct almond tone; Scarpetta’s blend of Friulano and Chardonnay is almost too drinkable! On to Chateau Routas, which is an absolutely classic Provençal rosé with notes of melons, strawberry, and of course that limestone backbone. Finally coming to a very rustic and quite interesting red wine from Slovenia. This Refošk (Refosco) from Vina Koper with it’s floral nose, flavors of ripe berries, and soft tannins make it a wonderful light red wine to serve semi-chilled on a balmy evening.
Get ready for the weekend… Start with Hopey & Co. on Fridays from 4-7pm, French Broad Ave and Black Mountain.
