All for one and one for all!
Try the Hogwash Rose: a fun yet serious wine with notes of sunny wildflowers, citrus, peach, pear, rose, lemon zest and ocean air. It's a customer favorite
That is what Asheville is all about. Community. With the onslaught of COVID, many restaurants were compelled to close. The domino effect of these closures was that wholesalers lost business selling food and wine to these establishments and, consequently, had warehouses full of products.
At Metro North in Reynolds Village, we are working to help the wholesalers while also providing great wines at reduced prices to our customers. Many wines destined for restaurants are available to you at 20% to 60% off what would be the standard retail shelf price.
We also offer discontinued wines. You might ask why a wine is discontinued. Lots of reasons, none of which have to do with the quality. A winery might change the label and want to avoid customer confusion with two labels on a shelf.
A winemaker might change the blend and with it, the name. Perhaps the new vintage has already arrived making it difficult to sell the previous vintage. Or international issues including tariffs and political embargos.
A great example of our selection at Metro North is the 2016 Henry Lagarde Chardonnay, which garnered an average of 89 points by internet critics, offered at $8.99, a 47% discount off the standard retail price. This is a fresh, unoaked Chardonnay from Argentina reminiscent of the crisp style of Sauvignon Blanc. Pair Lagarde with fish, white meat, creamy sauces or mushrooms.
Wine Enthusiast gave our Netzl Chardonnay from Austria 90 Points! Presenting an intriguing aroma of dried hayflower with a waft of lemon with a soft and rounded palate of mellow pear fruit. Pair with low acid foods including poultry, lobster, risotto, roasted vegetables, or cream sauce. That’s a lot for $13.99, a 36% discount!
You want red wine? Maybe Italian? Try our 2018 La Maialina Chianti for $9.49, a 37% discount. La Maialina is Classic Chianti style with a little more fruit, red cherries and strawberries plus hints of sweet spices wrapped in a soft finish. This is your go-to weeknight wine!
And for summer, you just can’t beat our 2019 MAGNUM of Hogwash Rosé for $19.99, a 50% discount. Hogwash is the creation of Tuck Beckstoffer, one of Napa’s most renowned winemakers. Lively with a beautiful texture, Hogwash is a fun yet serious rosé with notes of sunny wildflowers, citrus, peach, pear, rose, lemon zest and ocean air, leading to a clean and precise finish. Hogwash has been a customer favorite!
And from the home of Ferrari, we present Azienda Agricola Pezzuoli Lambrusco! Sustainably farmed estate fruit from Modena, this is one of the best bottles of Lambrusco we have tasted.
This fun red is fresh, balanced, and lively with a bit of spritz presenting a beautiful fragrance of red fruit layered with floral notes. It’s crisp and lightly off dry palate works from aperitif to picnics. Rarely seen in the USA, our price is $10.99, a 39% discount.
