Hospice du Rhône in the Rhône Valley | April 10 - 13, 2017

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

To showcase both the France and the United States, each Master Class will highlight wines from both California and the Rhône Valley. For our California representation, winemaker Bill Easton of Terre Rouge Wines, will lead the classes through a California Rhône journey of Grenache and Syrah. To ensure a true look at California, below is the list of California wines that will be shared at the Grenache and Syrah Master Class during the 2017 Découvertes en Vallée du Rhône.
