Wardman Wines, in partnership with the Rhône Rangers, is excited and honored to host Patrick Comiskey for a guided tasting of American Rhône wines. Patrick is the author of the new book, American Rhône: How Maverick Winemakers Changed the Way Americans Drink. The book has been hailed as "a compelling, impeccably researched tale of the band of misfits and renegades who saw an alternate path for California and elsewhere...Essential reading for Rhône lovers!"
As our loyal customers are aware, we at Wardman Wines are incapable of self-control when it comes to getting Rhône wines for the store. So the goal of this tasting is not simply to hear a fascinating story, try some iconic wines, and perhaps gain some converts to our cause. No, the real goal is to prove that we are not crazy and there are whole books and organizations just as gaga over Rhône wines as we are.
Come out and join us!

2015 Jaffurs Viognier Bien Nacido Vineyard
