Wines of the Southern Rhone Class This Monday, 9/12

The first of our fall wine classes is coming up this Monday, and we are very excited.  We have a class on the wines of the Southern Rhone.  All classes are $65 per person, $35 for wine club members.  To register, call us at 206-285-1129 or email wineoutlet@gmail.com

Explore the wines of the southern Rhone with us. The southern sub-region produces an array of red, white and rosé wines, often blends of several grapes such as in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This region has a more Mediterranean climate with milder winters and hot summers. The differing terroirs, together with the rugged landscape which partly protects the valleys from the Mistral, produce microclimates which give rise to a wide diversity of wines. A feature of the cultivation of the region is the use of large pebbles around the bases of the vines to absorb the heat of the sun during the day to keep the vines warm at night when, due to the cloudless skies, there is often a significant drop in temperature.
