Bubbles at the Bar June 14th 5pm

Please join us on Tuesday, June 14th, for a tasting of four everyday sparkling wines with Josh Austin, Freedom Beverage Company, "on the house" @MetroWines, 169 Charlotte Street in Asheville. This is a stand-up complimentary wine tasting.
"We want customers to become more familiar with sparkling wines," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "Sparkling wine is not just for celebrations! Sommeliers tell us that there is hardly a food that does not pair with sparkling wine and sparkling wine really over-delivers for its price."
 
MetroWines offers sparkling wine in bottles and cans in different styles and price ranges. "There is no end to the versatility of sparkling wine," says Gina Trippi. "Sparkling wine goes from the table to potato chips to the pool!"
Please join us on Wednesday, June 22nd, 5-6:30 @MetroWines on Charlotte Street to meet the iconic winemaker, Carol Shelton, and taste her wines. At the same time, you will be supporting Mountain Pet Rescue Asheville! This is a stand-up complimentary tasting.

Grand Re-Opening in MountainX!

From MountainX, Wednesday, May 11th by Kay West:

Aging in place

On Feb. 15, MetroWines closed its flagship store on Charlotte Street to walk-in customers, as renovations were underway to restore the small building to its century-old bones. (The shop continued to accept online orders and offer curbside pickup throughout the process.) “We took off all the drywall to expose the original brick and removed the drop ceiling to reveal the original tin ceiling,” says store manager Zach Eidson. “That added about two feet of height and really brightened things up.”

When the store opened to the public again on April 22, customers saw not only the refurbished old but also some new additions, including flooring, racks and lighting.

What has not changed, assures Eidson, is the layout. “Regular customers walk in and are blown away by the look, but glad to see their favorite wines in the same places.”

On Saturday, May 14, 1-5 p.m., MetroWines will celebrate its official grand reopening with a tasting of DAOU Vineyards wines, paired with small bites by chef Sam Etheridge.
