What a find

Tucked away on a side street, so happy we found it! Great place to have a glass or two and browse their extensive inventory.

The last time that we were there they had a piano player that was playing all the Beatles music. Very happy and friendly crowd. A must visit for a place to hear some music, have appetizer and a small bite. Richard, the owner is always on site to answer any question you have regarding the extensive vine selection they offer.

If your looking for an eclectic cultural experience surrounded by great wine and music you can't go wrong here. Our waitress, Paige, was so attentive and knowledgeable. We relaxed with great friends and listened to some good jazz from three fine musicians and had a great California Merlot to go with the perfect atmosphere. This place is a must if... More

We absolutely loved this wine shop stopped in and discovered also served lite meals. We went back for dinner and it was surprising delicious. Live entertainment with Joe Cruz who plays the piano and does Beatles and Elton John. What a fun night definately visit if you are in Waynesville.

What a wonderful time we had in the Classic Wine Seller. They have affordable and fine wines and craft beer if you just need to pick some up. But that is not why you need to stop in here. Stop in here on a Friday or Saturday for live music and dinner. They serve Tapas, small plates and great desserts.... More

This was our second visit to meet friends and share a meal...with accompaniment! Not a huge menu, but everything our table had was delicious...tapenade, salads, pasta, steak, scampi...and well-presented. Our hosts and servers were welcoming and appropriately attentive without hovering. Their selection of talent...chamber music the first time and rousing holiday songs on this occasion...both entertained and fit the space.... More

This is the best wine selection that I have found in Waynesville. If you want fine wine (to drink there or carry out), this is the place to go. The food is secondary, but not bad. Good cheese and appetizers. We have been here at least a dozen times and I have never been disappointed.
