Rhone and Rhone Style Wine Weekend
October 24, 2015 @ 9:00 am - October 25, 2015 @ 6:00 pm
Although they share the same river, the Northern and Southern Rhône Valley are quite different in terms of climate, soils, topography, and grape varieties. There are also significant price differences between the wines of the two areas, with those of the North being more expensive. The Southern Rhone, on the other hand, is much more important in terms of quantity. Not only does the region produce more than 53 million gallons of wine annually, its appellations — from Côtes du Rhône Villages to Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape are known for their quality and value.
Indeed, the wines of the Southern Rhône are so popular that producers in other regions, most notably California and Australia, have adopted its grapes and winemaking techniques. To celebrate the Southern Rhône, Colonial Spirits will be offering a 20% discount on six or more bottles of every wine from the area this coming Saturday and Sunday. The same discount also applies to those produced by “Rhône Rangers” in California and Australia. Finally, for customers interested in trying before buying, the wine team will be conducting a tasting of selected Rhone wines, as well as those of similar style from other regions, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm on Sunday the 25th. We look forward to seeing you there.
