“A Trip Down the Rhône!”

The vineyards of the Rhône Valley form one of the great wine regions of France. The Rhone river starts high in the Swiss Alps, flows into Lake Geneva, and then continues for 250 miles until it empties into the Mediterranean, just west of Marseille.

Join us as we take a virtual trip through the vineyards of the Rhône River Valley from Lyon to Avignon. You’ll see that the valley consists of two distinctly different parts – the North and the South. Although the two are separated by a mere one-hour drive, the vineyard terrain and the weather temperament dictate two distinctly different wine cultures. Sort of like the Union and the Confederacy, except for the fact that they get along just fine!

We’ll sip on some crisp summer whites, a refreshing Rosé, and a sampling of some of the stellar reds from the region’s top villages, all paired with the signatures foods of southern France. This is a trip you will not want to miss, especially with Holly Howell and Annette Stewart as our guides for the evening!

Registration begins at 6:30 PM.

Capacity is limited. Registration closes on Tuesday, June 5, 2018.
