Saturday, February 23rd, 1:00-5:00p, Vacqueras vs. Gigondas!
It's Us v. Them! Vacqueras v. Gignodas! These two (relatively) new appellations in the Rhone Valley of Southern France have really distinguished themselves over the last decade or so. Both areas make wines based on the Grenache grape, but the two are vastly different in soil type and sunshine, so the wines are complete opposites. With the addition of Syrah, Mourvedre and a little Carignan, wines from these two appellations are half the cost of their big brother, Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Oh, and we will taste a CDP too to see how it holds up against their country cousins.
FUN! FUN! FUN!
See you this Saturday!
