This is a guest blog written by our Specialty Director, Courtenay!
I am really excited to introduce our new Ambler’s wines for Earth Fare! We partnered with the Biltmore Estate Winery here in Asheville for the project, and after months of discussions, designs, tastings and production, they’re finally HERE!
The name, Ambler’s, comes from one of the many paths that are on the Biltmore Estate property. The special thing about this particular path is that it is unmarked and original to the Vanderbilt’s home. It is a sort of secret path on the estate that only certain people know about.
Like the path, the Ambler’s wines are a sort of secret insider’s path to delicious, yet affordable wine. Anybody can pay $50 and get a good bottle of wine, but where’s the fun in that? The thrill of the hunt lies in finding that really good bottle that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Well, I’m going to let you in on a secret: Ambler’s is that wine.
We have four wines to choose from:
They all taste more expensive than they are. They come with a fabulous pedigree, without being stuffy.
My favorite is the Sauvignon Blanc, but then again I like that style of wine. It’s crisp, it’s grassy. It’s a natural with so many different cheeses. But to tell you the truth, I just like a glass of Ambler’s when I get home from work. I can pour a glass, read a magazine, get in my big chair with my 6 month old black kitten Miles, and enjoy the good life!
