The best place to grab a glass of wine in Asheville, visit with friends and locals, and watch the parade of happy people walk by! Busy, bustling and fun - live music too! Be sure to try the daily wine specials - always really good wine.

We love going here at least once a week. My wife loves wine and I'am a craft beer fan so all our needs are satisfied at one location. Service is great and the atmosphere is fun.Dogs are welcome and great small plates items.

In downtown Asheville for business. Rainy but decided to try the wine bar recommended by the front desk. It had a quaint little cheese shop right next door which is part of it. I ordered a racquette tray and then sat at the bar which was connected. Hustle bustle. Wine was good and the cheese and baguette was very tasty.

This was my first visit to a wine bar, and the woman behind the counter recommended an excellent dry white wine which was only $5 a glass. I loved the atmosphere of the place which fronted one of downtown Asheville's lovely streets. It didn't seem to be a major thoroughfare like Broadway Avenue, so sitting by the open window in...

nice little bar on Walnut, staff really nice, great wine list, nice atmosphere, I loved how the bar opened right up to the street and you could sit there and people watch for hours. Some patrons had dogs so FYI for non dog lovers.

We stopped here after our dinner for a nightcap. We loved this place! Their Thursday night band was fantastic. Wine was good. We had a seat by the window and had a blast! We will go back.

This is a great wine bar with small bites. They always have a wine special, one red and one white. The pretzels are great. Excellent service.

We hit this place after a great dinner at another restaurant. It was Sunday night and they had a trio called purple playing. I do not drink wine but they had a good selection of beers. The place was small but cozy. Share places to sit at long tables. They had a cheese and meat place next door. Perfect

Spent an hour or so here before dinner. We had the window seat which was great because the weather was awesome and gave us great people watching. There was a crack in my boyfriend's glass but it was immediately fixed by the bartender. We also had local beef jerky from Hickory Nut Gap farm. Highly recommend that at only $3... More
