Part of WOW: World of Wine Intensive. The full series can be purchased here.
The Rhône Valley boasts a long history of quality wine production; in fact, the Romans arrived in Southern Rhône in 125 BCE. While this region is often overlooked for Burgundy or Bordeaux, this unique region is one you must add to your radar - full of quality and diverse grape varieties like Syrah, Viognier, Grenache, and more. You rarely find these grapes anywhere else in France. The Rhône River is dotted with vineyards; however, the majority of the vineyards fall into one of two categories: Northern Rhône and Southern Rhône. In this in-depth class, we’re exploring these two distinct wine areas; comparing and contrasting their landscape, wines, and production methods while exploring some of the most prestigious appellations within the region. Open up a Rhône wine from your cellar to virtually "cheers" the class.
Zoom links will be sent via email on the morning of the class. Follow-up notes are sent the following day.
