Letter to the Editor – Wine Time? Shop Local!

Your Sunday, July 9 “Wine Time” article didn’t mention that Asheville has the absolute best wine clubs right here. There are at least three in town. Ours has all of the pros and none of the cons listed for the national clubs you mentioned. But your article missed one con we don’t have and two pros we do have. Con: all of these national clubs have expensive shipping fees. If they say there are no fees, trust me, it’s coming out of the quality of the wine. And the two pros: local clubs are a better value, and all of your club dollars stay in Asheville and support your community. So, consider the local clubs before sending your dollars out of town and NC.
