2015 Yamhill Valley Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir McMinnville AVA, Willamette Valley, Oregon

September 14, 2019

These folks are all about Pinot Noir and they’re passionately dedicated to producing wines that are distinctively Oregon and distinctively Yamhill Valley. The proof of their success is in the bottle, and for my money, their wines stack up very nicely alongside some of my favorite Burgundy releases.

Maison-Jean Luc et Paul Aegerter Cosmic Chardonnay – Vin de France

August 17, 2019

What if I told you that the Cosmic Chardonnay was sourced from four different growing regions in France and was made by a well-known Burgundy grower and producer in Beaune and Nuits-Saint George? And, it’s under 15 bucks a bottle? Well, that sure sounds like crazy talk!

Paul Aegerter would strongly disagree.

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.
