“The cool kids are here.”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

The hippest place in town on Friday nights (and Sat night too) in Waynesville is usually the back room at The Wine Seller. Live music (tonight the sensational 18-year-old Dominick Taylor with his dad on bass (!)) is a curated excellence. Why do the hip kids favor Clapton and Hendrix over their own generation? The food is appropriate for the space - the lamb gnocchi is a favorite.

“Great advice for wine selection”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Very pleasant, personable gentleman who shared his advice on wine selections for our "first time visit" to a friend's home up in the mountains. Welcoming our visit to his shop and sharing information about the area was an extra plus. Variety of wines and reasonable prices would bring us back again.

“Great Entertainment, Service, Food...and WINE!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Attended the recent performance by the Jesse Junior Quarter (featuring music of Cole Porter) and had dinner...wonderful evening! Great talent, but not too loud, excellent food (prime rib), and good wine. Service was excellent! A very pleasant evening with friends in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. We will definitely be back!

“Dining”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

We got food from "next door" and then brought it over to the Seller, at their recommendation, so that we could enjoy a glass of wine.

“Great place!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We have been to Waynesville four times and always make it a point to visit The Classic Wine Seller. This last time was the best as there was live music, great food and wine! There were four of us and we all had something different and it was all good. There is a tremendous selection of wine and it is so cozy (below street level) so it really feels like a wine cellar.
We all made great memories that night and can't wait until our next visit! We all said "It's a given, when it Waynesville we MUST go to the Classic Wine Seller!!" The only bad thing I can say about this place is it is not close to my home.
