Smoky Mountain Shop

JUST IN TIME for the summer tourist season in the Smoky Mountains, the Asheville, North Carolina wine merchant James West finally had a sign in place last month for his shop on Merrimon Avenue. It only took 289 days from its opening for James to be able to announce Westlake Wines to passing motorists and the odd pedestrian. “Second fromĀ  the top,” he pointed out to me recently. “Hopefully it will finally attract some attention.”

Congratulations, James!
