Event Details

Just as Bordeaux cultivated the New World’s ideas and practices for Bordeaux-style red blends, the Rhone Valley gave us our ideas and practices for Rhone-style red blends. Foremost among them, the New House of the Pope - Chateauneuf du Pape.

Yet while CdP is widely considered to be the pinnacle of quality in Rhone blends, There are scores of New World regions making lots of Rhone-style red blends. In Australia, Rhone blends - or not blends - have taken the world by storm for their powerfully expressive red wines. 

In California, there are the Rhone Rangers. The Rhone Rangers are at the heart of America’s white-hot red blend craze. Conceived in the 1980s and revived in the 1990s, the Rhone Rangers are the catalyst behind the new popularity of Grenache and Syrah red wine blends.

And this is just to cite two regions in the world that aspire to the triumph of Chateaunuef du Pape. At this tasting, we're going to explore as much as we can in CdP styled blends, leaving no stone unturned as we circle around the globe for these magnificent wines.
