Money, Mayhem, Murder: The Darkest Side of Wine

Join us for “Money, Mayhem, Murder: The Darkest Side of Wine” @MetroWines.
Over the centuries, the wine business has occasionally turned deceptive, dangerous and often criminal! Andy Hale, Director of The Asheville School of Wine @MetroWines, takes us on a remarkable and sometimes frightening journey through the very darkest side of wine.
“Some of the most recent incidents of wine crime have North Carolina connections,” says Hale. “Where wine and money are involved, you can expect anything.”
Each class is $30 or $75 for all three classes.
