Vive La France – The Rhone Valley super tasting

May 17 @ 19:00 - 21:00

£35

Join us in Manchester for a wonderful night of wine from the renound Rhone Valley region of France. On the night we will tase 8 wines, showcasing the best this beautiful region has to offer.

If you are a fan of smooth, full bodied reds, food friendly whites and a summery rose, then this tasting is for you.

The classic wine region of the Rhone Valley is home to the beautiful Syrah – which back in the day was used to beef up the wines from Bordeaux (something the Bordelais like to keep under their hats). The styles of wines are rather different between the Northern and Southern Rhone, which you will discover through tasting wines such as Crozes Hermitage and Chateauneuf du Pape.The South of France has a wonderful Mediterranean climate which is not just fantastic for holidaying in, but also great for growing ripe grapes with bag loads of flavour. We will explore some regions renowned for their quality, but it is the wide range and affordability of wines from the South, that we’re sure will surprise and delight you!

We usually taste 6 wines at our evening events but on this night we will treat our guests to 8, and with some really high quality, big price tag wines in the mix too!

Tasting notes and some palate cleansing nibbles included too, plus a digital presentation.

Places are strictly limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment!

This wine tasting would make the ideal gift for the wine lover in your life, and like all our events if you book a place, we can send you a gift voucher. Click on the email link when you receive your automatic confirmation, request a voucher and we’ll do the rest.
