Join us to help us celebrate our eight anniversary for our next Super Saturday Wine Tasting! Our friends from Asheville-based importer/distributor Rise Over Run Wine join us to pour the wines and tell the stories. Being that it’s our birthday, we can’t charge you any money to come our party. The tasting is free to the public — spread the word. Asheville’s Best Free Wine Tasting — Just stop by, we’ve got plenty of free parking! It’s hard to believe this little shop has been kicking for eight years. What started out as a young man’s dream has turned into a very successful enterprise that pays four full-time workers well above a living wage. It’s also created a great community meeting spot for wine lovers from near and far. I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved together, and I look forward to continued growth and comaraderie with both customers and our many trusted business partners. With all that sappy stuff out of the way, this is going to be one heck of a wine tasting. Ryan and Kate of Rise Over Run Wine have assembled an incredible portfolio of unique and delicious wines from all corners of the globe. And you’re going to love this lineup of wines. There’s some great values, as well as some “heavy hitters” here. Stop by, say hi, wish us happy birthday, taste, learn, and save. Thanks folks! All of the featured tasting wines are 20% off by the bottle on tasting day only. Can’t make it by, but want to take advantage of the savings? Call us at 828.505.8588 and we can run your card over the phone. 1. 2017 Domaine Blanc et Fils Apremont (Savoie, France) – The light, crisp, Jacquere-based whites of Savoie make for great summer refreshment. This one is wonderfully fresh and delightfully crisp and aromatic. 2. 2016 Domaine Du Coing de Saint-Fiacre Chardonnay “Aurore” (Loire Valley, France) –Fans of Chablis and Muscadet, we’ve found your new wine! From vineyards in the Atlantic-influenced, western part of the Loire Valley, this no-oak Chardonnay boasts aromas and flavors of pear, quince, citrus, and mineral. Crunchy, crisp, and less than $15, this is a great, warm-weather Chardonnay. 3. 2014 Rolly Gassmann Pinot Blanc (Alsace, France) – This uber-traditional Alsatian producer’s Pinot Blanc blew our minds when we tasted it recently. Almost golden colored, with obvious notes of botrytis, it’s fat, plump, and hedonistic white wine. Look for notes of white peach, poached pear, honey and spice. Seriously world-class stuff that won’t break the bank. 4. 2017 J. Mourat Collection Rose (Loire Valley, France) – Dry rosé is an ideal beach wine, and this one comes from vineyards very near the Atlantic ocean. A blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, and Negrette, all from biodynamic/organic vineyards, it offers up lovely notes of strawberry, cherry, herb, and mineral. Great by itself, it’s also great with summer vegetables and other fresh fare. 5. 2017 Domaine J. Mourat Collection Rouge (Loire Valley, France) – This fun and juicy blend of Pinot Noir, Negrette, Gamay, and Cabernet Franc comes from organically farmed vineyards in the western part of the Loire Valley. It’s one of my favorites for everyday consumption, as it offers up honest notes of earthy, spicy, red fruits and palate-cleansing acidity. 6. 2016 Empordalia Sinols Negre (Emporda, Spain) – For fans of Priorat and Montsant, this delicious red is going to be your new best friend! A blend of 40% Garnacha, 30% Carignan, and 30% Merlot, this one soars with ripe cherry, blackberry, licorice, and pepper notes. Rich and fleshy, yet fresh at the same time, this is like really good Priorat for less than $15. 7. 2013 Celler El Masroig Pinyeres Tinto (Montsant, Spain) – This is another Priorat lookalike! It’s a stellar and delicious value as well. Composed of 50% Garnacha, 40% Carignan, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged for 12 months in French oak. The result is a rich, flashy, and flamboyant red that will please many palates. 8. 2014 Porter Bass Zinfandel “Dot’s Garden” (Russian River Valley, California) – For those who prefer more of a “large and in charge” red, this one’s for you. Simply put, this is stunning Zinfandel from an old, biodynamically farmed vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley. You will not be disappointed by this one.

Every third Saturday of the month during May through October, the resident artists at Grovewood Village will open up their studios to the public, allowing visitors to gain insight into their creative process and view their most recent works. Tours are free and self-guided and will take place from 11am - 4pm on all dates. Grovewood Village is home to 10 resident artists, whose studios are located directly next door to Grovewood Gallery. These workspaces were originally built to house the weaving and woodworking operations of Biltmore Industries, an Arts and Crafts enterprise that played a significant role in the Appalachian Craft Revival during the early 20th century. Today, Grovewood’s resident artists - inspired by an earlier craft force - create jewelry, pottery, sculpture and more, in the same workshops where the famed Biltmore Handwoven Homespun was once made.

Dear Friends, Are you ready to jump more deeply into embedding NVC into your DNA and the DNA of our community? Me too! Over my 15 years of sharing NVC, I see over and over for myself and many others that the deepening comes in community. So I am inviting you to join an intimate 4 week NVC community intensive, 4 Wednesdays in a row, 4 hours each week, Wednesday August 22- Wednesday September 12.  Meeting time will be from 5- 9 pm here in Asheville. In addition to 4 hours each session, we will have journaling and buddy connection in between. Let's get this into our individual and collective operating systems! Our group will be limited to 12 people. Cost will be sliding scale of $250-$500.  Contributions of $500.00 will support people attending at the $250.00 level.  This series will count toward CNVC "Certification" as it now stands, providing 16 hours with a certified trainer (me) and an opportunity to receive feedback from a trainer and your peers if you choose to request a bonus observation and feedback session. In my path to trainer certification, receiving this feedback was deeply valuable to my learning and growth as well as to developing ongoing connection to other trainers and peers. It also was fun and healing for me and others to participate in simulated sessions, often relishing the opportunity to get on the spot empathy from the trainer-in-training for simulated or real jackals!  We will have these optional bonus observation and feedback sessions (with other class members present)  for anyone enrolled in the CNVC trainer certification program. I am working on the curriculum for this course and welcome your requests and input. I am drawn to "deepening" and living NVC by going back to the basics- here is a gem from Marshal's original book that reminded me that the fundamental skill of observation is not a dogma or rule;  rather is an opportunity to live in greater and greater connection, clarity and awareness:  “NVC does not mandate that we remain completely objective and refrain from evaluating. It only requires that we maintain a separation between our observations and our evaluations. NVC is a process language that discourages static generalizations; instead, evaluations are to be based on observations specific to time and context.”(Marshall’s italics) Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, 2nd edition, page 26. A useful journaling practice may be to note when you use observations and when you use evaluations, and when needs of yours and others are met and unmet in your use. Let me know! Please register as soon as you are ready to commit! Earlier registration energizes and inspires me!  Feel free to email me with any questions: [email protected]
