About: Ciao Asheville Presents Tuscany Workshop Chat and Tasting
Please join Ciao Asheville for our second “Italy Off the Beaten Path” series on Thursday, January 13, at 5:30pm at Metro Wines, 169 Charlotte Street, Asheville. This series is designed to introduce you to the lesser known, smaller, and more intimate places in Italy that offer a wealth of travel experiences.
David Skinner, a local Asheville artist, will present information about Spannocchia, which is in the Tuscan hills just 25 minutes west of Siena. David holds annual painting workshops at the 12th-century estate located there. The estate is also a working organic farm that produces its own wine, olive oil, and salumi. David calls it “a magical setting.”
The Asheville Wine Focus Group @MetroWines chose Lorimer Gruner Veltliner for the shop. Turns out, they aren't the only ones who found this wine to offer a great price to quality ratio. The decision was unanimous!
"We did a tasting here and found several wines that we'd never seen elsewhere.
Prices are very reasonable.
Staff will help you find the kind of wines you want, so be sure to ask!"
