Starting at the Alps and meandering over 500 miles south to the Mediterranean Sea. lies the Rhone Valley. It was carved out in the last ice age by the Rhone Glacier. It was the Romans that really put this valley on the path towards wine greatness as they used it as a kind of 'highway' through France while planting vines along the way. We now regularly reach for Rhone Valley wines because of the versatility and value they offer. Bruno Lafon has over 30 years of experience wine-making and in viticulture throughout France and has built a hugely respected portfolio of French and other European wines that he imports into the United States. On Friday, January 29th we will be hosting a virtual tasting of three of our favorites from this portfolio including the, 2017 Xavier Lirac, 2018 d’Estezargues Cotes du Rhone Rouge in our base tasting pack along w/ the 2019 Mas de Libian Cotes du Rhone “Bout d’Zan” that is available as an additional selection for those that are interested. We will be co-hosting the event w/ Marine Royer who is the Chicago-based National Sales Manager for Brunos portfolio of wines.
After purchasing your French Rhone Valley Tasting Pack, you will receive an email with instructions on how to join us virtually, on the the 29th. Event is limited to 24 tasting packs so get yours before they sell out. Cheers!
