Event Description

We're off to the Rhône Valley for the next of our fine wine adventure.

The Rhône Valley is one of France's best regions when it comes to fine wine as it flies under the radar compared to Burgundy and Bordeaux and is correspondingly less expensive. The northern Rhône is the spiritual home of Syrah, with wines of superb balance between ripe fruit and the natural acidity and tannin of the grape & great bottle ageing potential.

We'll be trying reds from Côte Rôtie and Crozes Hermitage, a barrel matured Viognier white from the famous appellation of Condrieu.

The southern Rhône is flatter, hotter and windier. Grenache is king in this more mediterranean climate although Syrah, Mourvedre and a host of other grapes are often in the blend. Look out for delicious white blends and reds from Gigondas and Châteauneuf du Pape.

If you are wine enthusaist with an interest in the Rhône, the Syrah grape, Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf du Pape this is a great opportunity to try some excellent wines at one tasting.

Wines on tasting will include, but are not limited, to:

  • Condrieu
  • Côte Rôtie
  • Crozes Hermitage
  • White Southern Rhône
  • Gigondas
  • Chateauneuf du Pape

Your tasting will include:  tasting samples of 6 wines, light nibbles, full wine notes &hand outs, 2 hour interactive presentation, with plenty of time for Q & A, led by our wine tutor.

This is a tutored tasting with a digital presentation, tasting notes, tasting sheet, professional ISO tasting glasses and some food nibbles.
