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.

2017 Vega Piedra Rioja Tinto Haro, Rioja Alta, Spain

July 6, 2019

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…

Guy Allion ‘Les Mazelles’ Sauvignon Blanc Touraine, France

June 29, 2019

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!

Maison Lacheteau Parlez-vous Loire? Chardonnay-Melon

June 22, 2019

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.

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.

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.
