This post is from a previous FAcebook Post but it bears repreating.
True story. Bride comes in yesterday. Says she is having her wedding at an Asheville venue where you must pick your wedding wines from their list or pay a BIG corkage fee. The venue would not let her taste the wines!! She came to MetroWines to buy bottles of the wines she chose so she could taste them! UNBELIEVABLE.
We had one of the wines. It was, in the opinion of the staff, perhaps the worst wine you could offer for a wedding. Not very versatile with foods, a very definite taste and in no way a crowd pleaser. We don't even carry the second wine. Not one we want on our shelves and definitely not one you want on your wedding tables. Sad. Just sad.
The idea that wines for your wedding are a place where you can save a few $$ is so yesterday. And you really need to question a venue that tells you otherwise. We can help you select quality for the price. We don't PUSH cases of wines bought on discount. And there is no one size that fits all. Your wine depends on your menu, your story, YOU!
So 2 guidelines here. First, the wines you choose are part of the memories. You need to be right. Consult with us @MetroWines and make GOOD memories! And, second, a venue that won't let you taste the wines that you are buying doesn't GET IT and you have to wonder what else they DON'T GET!
Sorry about the length of this post, but we are very disturbed. Your wedding is important, very important.
And we take it that way.
