Explore in depth the Northern and Southern Rhone Valley over two classes offering a selection of crus bourgeois, premiers crus and grands crus for an advanced appreciation of some of the finest wine in France…
The vineyards of the Northern Rhône are situated on steep slopes rising from this famous rive. Although responsible for only a small percentage of the total of Rhône wines, these picturesque vineyards are home to some of the most beautiful wines in the world. Join us as we explore wines from Côte Rôtie down to Cornas and get a glimpse into what makes these wines so unique. An unforgettable experience!
