Cask & Wine

There's a spot right near the north end of Main Street that is in a great location for a restaurant - near the intersection with busy Highway 64 and popular shops like Mast General Store - that for whatever reason had a run of short-lived culinary efforts. The current occupant, Cask & Vine, opened shortly before Christmas in 2018, and after a visit in its early days I'm hoping it finds its fit for a longer stay.
“There are more than 50 varieties of bourbons and scotches available plus an extensive wine list and delicious cocktails.”
Cask & Vine emphasizes (as you might gather from its name) its beverage expertise and in particular its bourbons and wines. There are more than 50 varieties of bourbons and scotches available plus an extensive wine list and delicious cocktails. For those of us of simpler tastes, they also have a good selection of craft beers both on tap and in cans and bottles.
On the night we went as a party of eight we had reservations, and we were glad since the
place was nice and full at 7pm on a winter weeknight. I chose the Appalachian Meatloaf and liked it a lot, but several of our group opted for the Cask & Vine version of "hot browns", a hot open-faced sandwich which also got good reviews. Prices were moderate, with the hot browns off the Pub Fare menu at $12 and my meatloaf on the Plates menu at $16. Signautre Cocktails range from $10-$13. The atmosphere is kind of upscale casual - there was no live music the night we were there it's a smooth jazz kind of place in general.
How to Find It
Cask & Vine is at 536 N. Main Street in downtown Hendersonville, just south of Highway 64.
