Please join us on Wednesday, October 24th from 5:30 to 6:30 for a Seated Tasting of Washington State Red Wines @MetroWines.
The Asheville School of Wine hosts Robert Novick of Kellogg Selections. Bordeaux varietals from Andrew Hill (http://www.andrewwill.com/home/) and Rhone varietals from Gramercy Cellars (http://gramercycellars.com/) will be paired with small plates from Bone and Broth on Charlotte Street.
"Washington State Wines, in general, have only been partially discovered and are of extraordinary quality for the price." says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "These selections have all been critically acclaimed and would be perfect for the holiday table."
The Wines from Andrew Hill received between 91 and 94 points from Robert Parker:
“I continue to think these Bordeaux blends from Chris Camarda are some of the most impressive, balanced, and age-worthy wines coming out Washington State.” - Jeb Dunnuck in The Wine Advocate
And the wines from Gramercy also claimed between 92 and 95 points from Robert Parker:“Under the leadership of Greg Harrington and Brandon Moss, Gramercy Cellars is unquestionably in the top handful of producers in Washington State.” - Jeb Dunnuck in The Wine Advocate
