Event Details

The Romance of the Northern Rhone...
$30/per person; reserve your spot online with paypal

Beginning in a small town called Vienne a stone's throw south of the gastronomic capital of France, Lyon, to a quaint departmental capital called Valence, the Rhone River carves its way through the steep slopes of the Northern Rhone wine region.  In what are considered the finest expressions of Syrah and Viognier, the vineyards and production volumes are small but these wines are deeply flavored, fragrant and can be as long lived as some of the best Bordeaux wines.  

Join us on our journey through this storied wine region - seeped in history, tradition, and on the cusp of ultra modern changes.  You might see familiar places like Cote-Rotie, Hermitage, and Condrieu, or you might discover new producers to tickle your fancy.  It will be an evening to remember!
