(Visited 06/2015): Appalachian Vintner is a wine and beer store located in Biltmore Avenue in the Saint Dunstan’s area south of downtown. There is a private parking lot next to the building.

The inside is large with the area past the entrance devoted to wine and local artisanal foods (jams, mustards, BBQ sauces etc). The beer is in the rear, with many standalone shelves plus more around the perimeter. There is also a small bar back there.

The bar has around 20 beers on tap, with many local and other craft breweries represented such as Brevard, New Belgium, Wicked Weed, Hi-Wire , Bruery and Urban Orchard Cider. As for bottles, there are hundreds with pretty much every Asheville brewery represented (Wicked Weed, Hi-Wire, Catawba, Burial, Sierra Nevada etc), plus a wide array of domestic and imported craft breweries.

Service both at the bar and during checkout was good. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

All in all this is a must-stop place in Asheville and I would put it at the top of the list for future visits.

They are never rude, the dude below is a clown. Anything in the 80’s is not a good score! This the best beer store in WNC period! They maybe a "passing" grade but they are no where near what this place deserves. Where to start here. These guys (Chuck & Jeff) are super service oriented people. It’s kind of like visiting your good pals beer store...everytime. The selection is the best in Asheville hands down, with the prices blowing the doors off the ALL competitors. I’ve scored some real west coast gold here too: Lost Abbey, Russian River etc. unfortunately due to trophy hunters and tickers looking for another notch in their belt, these beers are only available to regulars now. Totally understandable IMO you have to show support to get beers they’ve gone WAY out of their way for. The local brew selection is the best in town too with a large growler selection from Burial, Wicked Weed, Noda, Innovation, Pisgah, Nantahala, Catawba and Green Man. Website is usually not completely up to date with new arrivals so their ratebeer site usually is better, but a phone call has worked too. 20 tap lines rotating local/import sours, barrel aged beers and a cask pump, I had the Olde Hickory Lindley Park. They now have growlers!! NEVER seen a draft beer here that was not at least some what rare. Beautiful space, clean glassware, filtered water, large bar with seating for 25+ with tables and huge patio. Beer area is in the back, well lit and spacious with shopping carts in the front when you walk in. Patio outside for smokers, fresh air. Wine selection is also huge if you are into that and dogs are welcome. Now they have a pizza joint, brewery and a food truck out back. This place gets all the monies Parking lot beside the store is massive, free and clean and there are also at least six other lots around the store that you can park at for free so getting in and out is a breeze. Best in Asheville for sure. If you visit take your time and talk to the owners they are super helpful and usually have something lying around that is not easily seen. If you are looking for specifics give them a call they will usually order beers that are not in stock.

Visited on a Tuesday in the early evening. There is a small parking lot on the side of the building, but it looked like you could go down behind it if that was full. There is a brewery down there if you go (Hi Wire). Inside there is a vast selection of wines that you see first and which takes up about the front half of the store. The back half has shelves and some refrigerated shelving full of beer. Awesome selection. They also have a beer bar right int he middle of the store with many taps and plenty of seating. I didn’t get a chance to check out their tap list, but saw they had stuff from Allagash and Wicked Weed on tap. That’s a good sign in my book. Service was friendly, but they mostly just left me to peruse at my leisure. Great bottle shop, and even though I looked at all the aisles, I know I missed some stuff. Hopefully I make it back here someday.

Interior is HUGE, yet it has a country store feel. Emphasis is on wine, but when you get to the back, it’s all beer. Selection is phenomenal - a dedicated beer lover will walk out with a thinner wallet. Service is alert,cwelcoming and helpful. This is a must!

Place rating incorporating the feedback of Mrs. JCB, who visited this place on a recent trip. She raved about the location, selection, and especially the world class service. Fabulous place to stock up on Nantahala, Wicked Weed, Burial, Pisgah, and others, along with a very good selection of domestic and import craft.
