Rosé of Tavel: Master Class and Rosé Lunch
Friday, April 26, 2024 | 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm | The Motor Co. | 64 E Rose St, Walla Walla | $150

The Rosé Lunch is a Hospice du Rhône mainstay. We are pleased to further expand this beloved lunch by offering a Master Class of Tavel AOC rosés prior to the meal. Sommelier Christophe Tassan will guide guests through the exclusively rosé-producing region of the Southern Rhône, which sits across the Rhône River from Châteauneuf-du-Pape and offers a darker, more complex profile than is often typically associated with rosés. 

A wide selection of Tavel AOC rosés will be served with lunch.
