Our first wine tasting was held on Monday, May 7th at the Weinhaus between the hours of 6 and 7:30. The Weinhaus is located on Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville, NC. We tasted all 13 varieties in our portfolio. Below are some pictures following our event. A good time was had by all.
We were excited to be a part of the Junior League of Asheville annual fundraiser and wine tasting "Asheville Uncorked" The event was held at the Blue Ridge Motion Pictures Studios. We poured our wines for hundreds of people. Uruguyan wines were the hit of the night. Several commented that our wines were the "Best Find" of the night. Below are a few pictures of Julie, our wine consultant, pouring wines for some the guests.
We met at the Country Club of Asheville to discuss forming a partnership between the Asheville Symphony Guild and True Vine Imports, Inc. Our Juanico export manager Nicolas Bonino was present to help us inform the Guild of the wonderful wines Uruguay produces. Below are a few pictures of that meeting.
We had our first wine dinner at Amici Trattoria hosted by Heath Miles, executive chef and owner. We were very lucky to be joined by Nicolas Bonino, the export manager for Juanico. Heath prepared a great Uruguayan feast. Each course was accompanied by one of our complementary wines. All in attendance had a great time and enjoyed wonderful food and wine. Below are a few photos of the dinner. We hope you will join us for the next one.
We participated in the March of Dimes Annual Fundraiser at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. We were the only featured wine tasting of the evening and were included in the section featuring some of the best chef's in Asheville. We were able to pour our wines for hundreds of guests and Juanico, one of the wineries we represent, was gracious enough to offer a case of their ICON wines for the auction. The case was auctioned off for $550.00 which will go to help prevent premature births and birth defects. Great thanks to Juanico for helping us support such a worthy cause. Pictures below are of our team pouring wines and also the ICON display. Special thanks to the March of Dimes for allowing us to participate and help raise money for their worthy cause.
