Rhone Rangers - Relish the Refined Rhone Valley Wines - BYOB or Just Taste

France's Rhone River Valley is one of the world's greatest wine regions. From Chateaunuef-du-Pape, one of the world's most eminent wines named after the second home of his emminence in the south, to the sensuous Syrahs of Saint Joseph and Hermitage in the north, the Rhone exceeds expectations for excellence.

Come taste in the pleasant chill of the underground tasting room at Portland Wine Storage. Come and cool down!

Wines from the Northern Rhone are mainly Syrah only. Wines from the Southern Rhone are mainly GSM blends. GSM stands for Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre.

Saint Joseph and Hermitage are most the famous wines of the North and Chateaunuef-du-Pape and CdR (Cotes du Rhone) are the most famous wines of the South.

Reward yourself, reach out and relish the richness of the Rhone.


$5 if you bring a bottle $10 to just taste. We will put the fees in a pot and the winner (whoever brings the best rated bottle will take home the pot (Minus food expense). Blind Tasting.

Meat and Cheese plates provided.

Great Value event, the last 8 times, everyone got their fill, and the winner took home money for bringing the best wine.

Once again, whoever brings the best wine (Blind rated), will take home the pot. If we get 10 people to show, the after expense pot should be at least $50, Last week the winner took home $95.

We will taste blind and rate using the Robert Parker 100 point system.

Think you know the Rhone? Bring a bottle and let's find out. If you bring the best bottle, you will go home with the winnings. Last time the winner took home $95, week before the pot was $80.

Starts at 7PM, but feel free to show up early, I always have a bottle or 2 open.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
