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 new home of his emminence in the south, Avignon, to the sensuous Syrahs of Saint Joseph and Hermitage in the north, the Rhone exceeds expectations for excellence.

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

Cote Rotie and Hermitage are most the famous wines of the North and Chateaunuef-du-Pape, Gigondas, Vacquerayas and CdR (Cotes du Rhone) are the most famous wines of the South.

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

So Just to be clear, Please bring only wines from the Rhone region of France.

$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 exotic cheese plates provided.

Great Value event, the last 8 times, everyone got to taste at least 10 wines, 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.
