Slanted Window Tasting Station cuts the ribbon

Slanted Window Tasting Station cuts the ribbon

The Franklin Chamber of Commerce was proud to welcome the Slanted Window Tasting Station to the community and the chamber family with a recent ribbon cutting celebration.  The Slanted Window Tasting Station is located at 587 Harrison Ave.

Macon County’s first and only local vineyard to bottle wine experience, Slanted Window Wines are crafted from decades old vines at SenAmore Vineyards in the ancient Appalachian Mountains. Wanting to offer a taste to locals and passersby alike, the Slanted Window Tasting Station was born. Blazing the trail for Western North Carolina winemaking, dedication to the craft and love for the land is transformed in every bottle. From European style red and white wines to Pyment (a co-fermentation of honey and grapes), Slanted Window a wine that will satisfy every palate. 

If wine isn’t for you, there is local North Carolina beer and bourbon tastings. To pair everything, an Italian born chef has curated a menu of delectable charcuterie boards, salads, sandwiches, and more.
