Bodegas Arráez Canallas Tinto D.O.Valencia, Spain

November 9, 2019

Canallas Tinto is sourced from vines grown on the clay and calcareous soils of La Font de la Figuera, at an altitude of 2000 feet above sea level on the outskirts of Valencia. American oak barrel aging for 4 months provides a roundness seldom found in such an inexpensive wine, and their high percentage of used barrels ensures the vibrant freshness that I love in this wine.

Friend and Farmer Hand Work Tempranillo Castilla La Mancha, Spain

October 18, 2019

There is a saying that to make great wine you must torture the grapes. If that is so, then La Mancha is an ideal place to make wine. Days are hot, conveying a lush roundness to the fruit. Nights are cold, providing the fruit with the bracing acidity needed to produce a balanced and lively wine. Rainfall is almost nonexistent, allowing the vines to grow grapes nicely concentrated in flavor.

It can come as quite a surprise that the area also sports a wide variety of tasty whites. Arneis from the Roero DOCG is one of those delicious off-the-radar whites you need to explore.

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.
