The Rhône Valley Masterclass: From Côte Rôtie to Châteauneuf-du-Pape
February 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education proudly presents the most comprehensive class available on a favorite subject.
The Rhône Valley Masterclass
Including the gems of Côte Rôtie and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, plus the very rare sparkling wine of the North, Saint-Péray
It’s one of my favorite wine regions. Sure, I get swayed by Barolo, Burgundy, and Willamette Valley. There are a ton of wines from California I love. But in the end, I continuously return to the Rhône Valley for many reasons. One is that it was a Châteauneuf-du-Pape that first got me curious about wine. Two, I love the earthy, spicy, meaty aromas of the wines. And thirdly, the overall bang for the buck from the Rhône continues to outperform many other wine regions.
In this new class, we’ll cover both the Northern and Southern sections of the Rhône, from the Grenache-based beauties around Avignon to the Syrah powerhouses in the north (including an amazing Côte Rôtie). Every major region will be detailed for you, along with tons of hints and tips to increase your Rhône confidence and bang for the buck.
And we’ll cover the key varieties. Deep discussions and great handouts on Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier await!
Wines to be served include the rare sparkling wine of the northern Rhone (Saint-Péray), a top-level Côte-Rôtie, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Cotes du Rhone, and much more. You can be guaranteed this is the most comprehensive Rhône class you can find!
