The Classic Wine Seller has a huge selection of wines. The shop is located on Church Street, a half block from the intersection of Church and Main St. in Waynesville, NC. Richard, the owner, is a great host, and the bar-tender, usually Megan, is prompt and courteous. The Classic Wine Seller is not only an extensive wine shop, but has events such as Wines on Wednesdays (WOW), and serves Tapas style food Wednesday thru Saturday. The shop also has a seating area, which accomodates about 25-30 people. Most Wednesdays is a specific type wine tasting with snacks to accompany, and on most Fridays and some Saturdays, the shop offers entertainment and tapas dinner, with the entertainment usually consisting of small jazz groups, local musicians, bluegrass, and a variety of just easy listening music. It is a great, intimate venue to enjoy a bottle of wine among friends, have a nice dinner at a very reasonable price, and enjoy the entertainment. Richard also has numerous select bottled beers, most of which are from NC breweries and very good.
Check out the shop's website for future entertainment, wine tastings, and special events Richard hosts. It is: http://classicwineseller.com/ . My wife and I attend the Friday night entertainments and have a tapas-style dinner frequently. Much of the food that Richard provides is his own recipes and are very good. We have met a lot of very nice people who were visiting from out of town and chose to make the Classic Wine Seller event a night out at a very reasonable price. During wamer months, the entertainment moves outdoors behind and to the side of the Wine Seller buiding in a courtyard.
