Select Wine Appellations — Wines of the Rhone (March 6, 2015)

SELECT WINE APPELATIONS This popular series will take us to the Rhone Valley, France, Piedmont Italy, Chile  and Argentina. Each of the two hour sessions will focus on a specific region and its wine- grape growing. Climate, soil chemistry, sunlight, water and other factors that contribute to the defining terroir for each varietal will be discussed. Tastings of hand picked wines will illustrate the lectures. It is hoped that you will come away with a better understanding of wines that you have been drinking.
