Read more

The Rhône Valley is known for red wines from Syrah in the North and Grenache based blends in the South. But what do wines made solely from Mourvèdre or Grenache actually taste like? This is a rare chance to taste unique samples and compare them to matured wines. An opportunity to see how the work of the winemakers succeeds in taking the best advantage of the different varietals.

Heather Dougherty is an experienced wine communicator, writer and judge with a special interest in the Rhône.
