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.

5 Star Review for MetroWines!

"Staff extremely knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming... selection is phenomenal. You can find good-to-great wines from $10-$$$. Many new wines to try from surprising locations around the world & old favorites. Also offers classes/tastings, wedding services, special orders. This is a shop for all - newbies and snobs will find something great here."

"Metro wines provided the alcohol for my wedding at Camp TonAwandah and they were beyond wonderful and helpful!! Kristen helped us choose what alcohol to serve, and then she was above and beyond in her service every step of the way! She allowed us to do an early keg pick up, AND delivery of the rest of the kegs and wine on a different day. The prices were more than fair and our guests were so happy! Highly recommend!!!!! And thank you again Kristen!!!"

Blue Zone Diet: Sardinia

Sardinia diet
The island of Sardinia is located west of the Italian Peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea. It is said to be the home of the longest-lived men (1Trusted Source).

The Sardinia diet is a variation of the Mediterranean diet — also called Sardo-Mediterranean — that’s associated with preventing chronic age-related diseases (9Trusted Source, 10Trusted Source).

The Mediterranean diet is characterized by a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, minimally processed whole grains and legumes, nuts and olive oil as main fat sources, moderate fish consumption, and low intakes of dairy, alcohol, and red meat (9Trusted Source).

In contrast, the Sardinian variation includes higher intakes of olive oil, fish, milk and dairy products, and alcoholic drinks (11Trusted Source, 12Trusted Source).

Some of the foods people eat and avoid on the Sardinian diet include (11Trusted Source, 12Trusted Source):
