Falderal Winery welcomes guests into the oak-study tasting room twice a month to expound upon the scientific miracle of fermentation. Instructor and vintner Paul Kovacich, a native of the terroir of western North Carolina, wields his experience at Thistle Meadow Winery to aid the public during fermented endeavors. Paul's class covers the winemaking process, from the addition of yeast to bottling to making labels out of cartoons from the New Yorker. Reservations are recommended, as the winery caps classes at eight students.

The Asheville International Children's Film Festival entertains all-ages audiences with a tightly packed schedule of 70 cinematic works from artists in 25 countries, divided into seven blocks of short films and one feature-length movie. On Saturday, families gather in Asheville Pizza & Brewing's colorful theater to witness Round the World and Home Again, a live-action flight through the lives, dreams, and playground treaty negotiations of children in seven countries. Wee ones release exhilarated squeals at 13 shorts in Once Upon an Adventure, which fills the screen with animated and live-action feats that delight juniors without the stress of adopting a litter of knights.
Zambra combines the fun, social style of tapas dining with locally sourced farm-to-table ingredients. The multifaceted menu changes nightly, always delivering a smorgasbord of Spanish-inspired concoctions that make for easy sharing, entertaining eating, and excellent reenactments of scenes from Godzilla vs. Chorizo. Possible tapas options include mixed sautéed mushrooms wrapped in sweet-potato wontons and edamame ($7) and prosciutto-wrapped medjool dates with goat cheese and honey ($6.50). For diners who seek heartier eating, Zambra's paellas offer up delectable, layered flavors—meat-free diners can dive into the vegetarian paella with fresh vegetables and roasted garlic ($10 per person), and seafood fanatics can harvest the bounties of the deep with lobster, calamari, clams, shrimp, and mussels ($17 per person).
Renaissance-style portraits and a scrolled plaque reading "Heavenly Spirits Wine Bar" give an Old World feel to the tavern-style space—fitting for a wine bar nestled within Treasure Keepers, an estate sale and consignment shop chock full of antique goods. As customers sip domestic and imported white or red wines from France, Monterey, or Germany, tapestry-cushioned seating relieves feet tired of supporting your weight and carrying you through hopscotch tournaments. Small plates such as an olive-oil drizzled baguette or a medley of Mediterranean olives rest on dark-grained tables, waiting to be paired with spirits.
