Share Grenache Day (Red, White, Rosé) Tasting With the North Coast Rhone Rangers

Event Details

Friday Sept 21st is International Grenache Day. (#GrenacheDay.)


Grenache is the second most widely planted red grape in the world  and is finally getting the credit and respect it deserves.  Grenache enthusiasts are connecting all over the world and coming together to celebrate this groovy grape.

The 32 members of the North Coast Chapter of the Rhone Rangers are joining together to offer wine afficiandos a chance to taste Grenache - red (Grenache Noir), white (Grenache Blanc, yes an actual grape). and Rose', as well as blends that feature Grenache.

There is no charge to attend, however donations, proceeds to the Rhone Rangers scholarship fund, are accepted, online and at the door.

A Serious, Educational Tasting

If you attended any of William Allen's prior Greenhouse tastings, the format is similar. Attendees get a clipboard of information with detailed notes on each wine, and walk around to interact with each winery.

Vote For Your Favorite

Attendees will have a chance to vote for their favorite Red, White, and blend. Help pick the top wines of the night!
