Welcome to Uncorked Asheville, an Asheville, North Carolina travel blog. Get up close and personal with this mountain-hugged city to experience Asheville like a local.
Christine moved to Asheville after falling head over heels with those blue mountains. She loves hiking, especially while daydreaming about meatball grinders and all of the beer that she will reward herself with afterward. As your boozy and bookish sommelier, please join Christine as she shares her favorite Asheville itineraries, restaurants, and activities.
Everyone Needs To Uncork And Unwind In The Mountains
Did you know that George Vanderbilt helped put Asheville on the map when he created the Biltmore? As a world-class traveler with family residences in NYC, Newport, and Paris, why did George choose North Carolina, of all places, for the construction of the biggest house in America?
I am telling you: it’s all about the mountain oasis. Gorgeous misty blue mountains embrace Asheville into a cozy blanket of sprawling vistas, endless hiking, and all the vegan food you could ever want. Asheville fills your soul with culture and your tummy with craft beer.
Over the years, Asheville has grown into a thriving hub for tourists, established residents, and newbies flocking to the scene. There is so much to see and do.

Who Is This Tipsy Hostess?
Hi, I am Christine
My husband and I visited Asheville on a whim. Originally from Connecticut, our Florida home began to suffocate us. Where were the seasons?
We needed a change. Fall runs in my blood—ok, well maybe fall beer does too.
During that fateful weekend visit, we instantly knew the boozy gods made Asheville for us. Was it the champagne bookstore, The Hunger Games waterfalls, breweries on every corner, or those beautiful blue and green-hued mountains?
Within two months, we moved into our Asheville home. Our days are filled with hiking, purple sunsets, and delicious local food.
Join me as I explore Asheville as a new local and share what I love to make your visit just as special as our first weekend in this beautiful and cultured city.
Does My Big Nose Look Familiar?
