Rhône Valley

Hospice du Rhône at the Découvertes en Vallée du Rhône

Exciting times here at Hospice du Rhône! After many years of being guests at the Rhône Valley Wines trade event, Découvertes en Vallée du Rhône, we were invited to present two, yes two, Master Classes on California Rhône wines alongside wines from the Rhône Valley. This was quite an honor as this premier trade only event is created to showcase only the wines from the Rhône Valley. To be asked to highlight California Rhône variety wines at this event was unprecedented. We are beyond honored to be the first to represent wines outside of the Rhône Valley at this famed event!

To showcase both France and the United States, each Master Class highlighted wines from both California and the Rhône Valley. For our California representation winemaker Bill Easton of Terre Rouge Wines led the master class attendees through a California Rhône journey of Grenache and Syrah. Below is the list of the wines that were shared at the Grenache and Syrah Master Class  the 2017 Découvertes en Vallée du Rhône.
