Western North Carolina's Full Service Wine Shop
2018 Rolle — 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah Rosé These terrific best-buys from the Languedoc are pure summer drinking pleasure! The South of France is a treasure-trove of value oriented wines with super low price tags — this pair from the Languedoc is a prime example. With the summer heat in full swing here in the Mountains,…Read More
Summer is the perfect time to discover these wines — the crisp whites are great thirst-quenchers, the rosés are refreshing and the reds are bright and lifted.Read More
Here is another terrific bargain and once again, it follows my principle of finding a well-respected producer and “drilling down” to their entry-level, value-driven wines. It never fails — the quality of the more expensive wines filters right on down to the daily drinkers! The art and effort are in knowing where to drill down to find the hidden gems…Read More
When it comes to Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre is the gold standard. While we adore Sancerre, when we want to pull the cork on a more value-driven Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire, we turn to the wines of Touraine. The “Les Malles” Sauvignon Blanc from Guy Allion is another terrific Sancerre stand in!Read More
The Parlez-vous Cuvée of Chardonnay and Melon de Bourgogne once again tops our list of summer favorites. This is a great example of how opposites do sometimes attract in the wine world — these two grapes fit together like a glove. The mineral-driven Melon is a perfect foil for the ripe roundness of the Chardonnay resulting in a wine that has wonderful balance of richness with zesty acidity.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
If you enjoy sipping wine outdoors in the summer, chances are you’ve poured a glass or two of Vinho Verde. This cool, crisp porch-sipper is the perfect antidote to the heat of summer and the perfect addition to any pool party or beach gathering.Read More
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.Read More
St. Hilaire d’Ozilhan Prestige Blanc and Rouge — These wines pack a ton of quality and are super versatile — the red and white Prestigeare a great choice for the beach, pool, or porch, and will be the star of the party at your summer cookouts.Read More

Our Mission Statement
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.
Call us, write us, email us, stop in. We'd love to see or hear from you!
