Adria Vini 2018 Mirabello Pinot Grigio

June 14, 2019

Pinot Grigio is the second most popular and consumed white wine in America… right behind Chardonnay. There’s a great reason for that: Pinot Grigio is super versatile. Inexpensive Pinot Grigio can be a great thirst-quencher on a hot summer day at the pool or beach, and an artisanal, estate bottled Pinot Grigio would be right at home in a fancy restaurant or dinner party.

Cascina Liuzzi 2014 “Otto” Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG Nizza, Italy

June 8, 2019

This is a bruiser of a Barbera and will stand up to any grilled or braised meats you throw at it. In the glass, the intense red ruby color opens to a nose of brambly plumb and dark berry with notes of toffee and spice. The rich expansive palate is full of dark red fruit and toasty notes of well-integrated oak. There’s ample structure that will allow for plenty of additional time in the cellar, however, the wine is supple and beautifully drinkable right now.

Bodegas Ovidio García 2014 OG Esencia Crianza Cigales,Valladolid, Spain

June 1, 2019

Regular AWM customers know I love to find wines produced by small family driven entities that are a bit off the beaten path. Their wines are usually super authentic expressions of their home region, and the bonus is that they’re quite often amazing values as well!

I had the pleasure of visiting Bodegas Ovidio García January last during my buying trip to Northern Spain. We ducked into the Bodega on our last day in the country and it turned out to be one of the highlights of my entire trip.

Our Mission Statement

Who we are...

In 1993, the Asheville Wine Market opened in downtown Asheville committed to the idea that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a great bottle of wine. Over twenty years later, now under the ownership of long time employee Laurence Weaver, that sentiment hasn’t changed. The Asheville Wine Market is still excited to be offering great wines at a great price, with an enthusiastic staff at the ready to help you find just the right bottle for your meal or occasion. We love talking about wine almost as much as we love to drink it, and hold firmly to the belief that wine is made to be enjoyed by everyone. After all, good wine is good wine, whether it costs $10 or $100. It’s the wine itself that interests us, as well as your enjoyment of it, not the price tag.
