Rhône 101: A Guided Tasting
September 15 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pmSOLD OUT
The Nashville Wine Auction is excited to host another wine tasting class, with this one to be led by Preston Hunt, WSET III, Wine Manager of Frugal MacDoogal! This tasting will include a variety of wines from the Northern and Southern Rhône. Wine Advocate’s Joe Czerwinski recently noted that the Southern Rhône’s largest appellation, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, has “enjoyed an unprecedented run of success in recent vintages. From a 2021 article on the Northern Rhône entitled “Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler,” he described the vignerons as “rolling 7s, 11s and hitting their points.
Twenty lucky bidders will learn what all the fuss is about and gain a basic understanding of these incredible French wine regions. Preston will lead this group on a journey along the Rhône river and through some of the great appellations with a tasting featuring affordable wines!
