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!

Scott Komplin found his passion for wine when his corporate job sent him to Sonoma, California on an extended project. A colleague invited him for a sparkling wine tasting at the beautiful Gloria Ferrer vineyards in the Carneros. Sipping bubbles on the terrace of that gorgeous Spanish villa was all it took. Now 15 years later, Scott is a trained wine educator, receiving his education through the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London. Scott has traveled extensively to wine regions across the globe…tasting and touring famed producers in regions such as Champagne, Chablis, Burgundy, Gascogne, Okanagan, as well as through the Sonoma and Napa regions of California.
