Posana Featured Wine

JONES VON DREHLE VIOGNIER 2019  | YADKIN VALLEY

BY THE BOTTLE/40

The September Wine Feature is a beautiful white that is made in North Carolina by family-owned winery, Jones Von Drehle Vineyards and Winery!

The story of Jones von Drehle Vineyards and Winery began in 2007 when in-laws Chuck & Diana Jones and Ronny & Raymond von Drehle discovered a perfect piece of land in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Thurmond, NC. They created an Estate Winery, planting carefully selected varieties of grapes among the thirty acres. The result of their efforts can be enjoyed at Posana with a refreshing and classic 2019 Viognier that offers gentle aromas of honeysuckle, apricot and peach. We suggest pairing this bottle with Posana’s Joyce Farms Chicken, Lemon Tarragon Gnocchi or Fried Tofu. Sip this wine slowly to appreciate the wonderful refreshing crisp hint of apricots and ripe peach.

Award-Winning Wine Lists

Both Posana and our sister restaurant Bargello hold distinguished awards from Wine Spectator.  Posana was Asheville’s only independent restaurant in 2014 to be awarded Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence.  They have continued to achieve that level of recognition through 2018 when they kicked things up a notch and earned Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence, once again to be the only independent restaurant in Asheville to achieve this level of recognition.  Posana’s cellar focuses on sourcing wine from small production vineyards with a focus on organic, sustainable, or biodynamic growing and production principles.  Posana has maintained Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence consistently since 2018.  Recipients of  Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence offer a wine list displaying “an excellent breadth across multiple winegrowing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation. Typically offering 350 or more selections, these restaurants are destinations for serious wine lovers, showing a deep commitment to wine, both in the cellar and through their service team.”

Bargello, opening in October of 2019, launched with a magnificent wine list curated by Sommelier Emily Dunnaway and went on to receive the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator in 2020.  We look forward to sharing our collections with you!
