EXTREMELY LIMITED TICKETS! On Thursday the 9th of July 2020, United Cellars will be popping the tops on 12 wines to showcase the breadth & depth of everything the Rhone Valley has to offer! The Rhône Valley is generally divided into two sub-regions with distinct vinicultural traditions, the Northern Rhône & the Southern Rhône. The northern sub-region produces red wines from the Syrah grape, sometimes blended with white wine grapes, & white wines from Marsanne, Roussanne & Viognier grapes. The southern sub-region produces an array of red, white & rosé wines, often blends Based around Grenache, Syrah & Mourvedre (what we call in Australia a GSM blend) such as in famous regions such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape. We'll take a tour across the whole Rhône Valley, from North to South but also to some smaller communes often overshadowed by the big names. This region is known for its extreme landscape & high mountains- indeed this is a section famous for its inclusion in the Tour de France. The cyclists will be riding through this area as we open the bottles at this event, so we'll get a great view of where these wines come from! This will be a spectacular tasting, & tickets are strictly limited due to the scarcity of some of these wines, so make sure you grab your tickets!
