"Wines of the Rhone Valley"
On Monday, August 20, Women Tasting Wine will feature wines from The Rhone Valley, presented by Lance Steffen of Casa Bruno Wines. The first thing to know about France's Rhone Valley is that it is divided into two parts. The northern Rhone is home to dark, powerful, spicy reds made with the Syrah grape (and a few luscious whites made from Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.) The warmer southern Rhone grows some Syrah, but its signature red wines - softer and riper - are blends, typically with Granach as the dominant variety.
Join WTW for a sensual and educational afternoon of wine, food and friends.Formed in 2005, Women Tasting Wine is all about women connecting with wine and with one another. How many wine tastings have you attended where the men evaluated the wines with serious determination while the women, anxious to talk about and share their thoughts on the wines, remained nearly silent? Hence, the birth of Women Tasting Wine. WTW is all about women connecting with wine and with one another. We are guided through each month’s selection of wines by various wine expert guests, and the wines are paired with appropriate food samples. The atmosphere is relaxed, casual, “women oriented” and just plain fun. Women come away with not only a better knowledge of the wines, but with a growing connection of friends.
