Wine Club Tasting: Valleys of France

Join us in all three stores this Saturday, March 14, from 12-4pm for a taste of this month's Wine Club selections, all from the Rhone and Loire Valleys of France.

The Valleys of France, particularly the Rhone and the Loire, produce a variety of gems from crisp and floral white grapes like Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc, and reds from spicy and heady grapes like Grenache, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. Chateauneuf-du-Pape, an appellation within the Rhone Valley where up to thirteen different varietals are approved for their red blends, is one of our personal favorites...where else do you find that kind of freedom and creativity in blending? Meanwhile the Loire, which is unfortunately often overlooked and misunderstood, presents a real opportunity for off-the-beaten-path discovery.
Selections include:

2007 Origine Sauvignon Blanc

2007 Bourillon-Dorleans Vouvray

2003 Domaine Le Murmurium "Opera" Cotes du Ventoux

2006 Clos de Caveau "Carmin Brillant" Vacqueyras
