What we're about
The French Broad Vignerons provide a broad range of experiences for those interested in wine, wine making, cider, cider making, establishing vineyards or orchards and tasting and evaluating wine and cider. We are a social, educational and service organization. We can turn a bottle of wine or cider into a joyful experience for our participants and members.
The French Broad Vignerons celebrate quality products at our wine evaluation events. We partner with the Asheville Wine and Food Festival, the new Appalachian Festival, and CiderFestNC to celebrate the products grown and produced in our region.
We are unique because we can teach you how to grow your grapes. We help you create your own wine and cider. We train you to evaluate your wine and cider and share your experiences with other. We meet for special events, vineyard and orchard instruction and to teach you to assess the wine you make, buy or share.
We often work and play at the same time as we help our members with planting, grafting, crushing, bottling and pruning. While these are very small group activities they give you an intimate experience in the vineyard, orchard, winery and mill.
