Wine is, of course, what it’s all about. Unpretentious and delicious, the wines at Rustic Grape tell stories full of heart and soul. The focus is on place driven, small-production wines from creative winemakers and family-run wineries. An enticing mix of familiar and eclectic wines are offered by the glass, with a rotating smaller artisan bottle list available for more exploration. Adding a playful approach to sipping, cocktails using house made syrups with wine, cider, and bubbly are also on the menu.
It’s Asheville, so there’s no forgetting the breweries! A rotating selection of local/regional artisan beers and hand-crafted ciders are always available. Food at Rustic Grape is artfully simplistic and mindfully paired with the wines. Enjoy sustainably produced cheeses and charcuterie, many made here in Asheville, alongside a few regional and imported selections. Artisan local breads, hearty gourmet spreads, and a rotation of delectable house made sweet bites round out a menu for anyone looking to cozy up for a snack or light meal.
Rustic Grape is perfectly located in downtown Asheville, yet just off the beaten bath. Only a block off of bustling Biltmore Avenue, the bar is on the edge of Asheville’s fun South Slope. A laid-back and charming bar opens onto a lively corner patio that is abuzz with locals and visitors alike.
