The one in front of me.
35+ years with a wine shop in the family. I've owned and operated the Weinhaus since 2004.
The opportunity to learn and experience new and/or different tastes, pairings, and revelations concerning wine, food, friends and life.
I am native to Asheville, introduced to good wine and food at an early age (my father opened a wine shop in the 1970s). After a career in retail, I began working for, then bought my father out of the Weinhaus. Now I have the perfect retirement job.
Ours is a new group that is quickly growing, and shows great potential! How nice to get like-minded folks together over food and wine.
