Description

Did you know that grapes from France’s famous Rhone Valley thrive in Washington State? You will have the opportunity to see what all the acclaim is about as we taste 8 wines from the Dreyfus Ashby portfolio with

special guest speaker Kate McGuire, Certified Sommelier and Southwest Regional Manager for Dreyfus Ashby.

 

In the northern part of the Rhône Valley, Syrah rules in such famous regions as Côte Rôtie, St. Joseph and Hermitage. As you move south, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Coinoise, Cinsault, Carignane, Petite Sirah and other obscure grapes are added to the mix. The halfway point of the Rhône Valley is an area known as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where the valley’s most interesting wine comes from. Though this wine is traditionally a blend of a dozen grapes, in the United States it is emulated in the GSM blend (Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre).

The Rhône revolution in Washington actually can be traced to 1914, when William Bridgeman, then mayor of Sunnyside, planted a grape called “Black Prince” on Harrison Hill, not far from what is now Interstate 82. It turns out “Black Prince” is another name for Cinsault, a minor Rhône red.

This month’s event will be hosted at AMBLI Global DTC. This locally-owned restaurant has been a “buzz” since it opened. The restaurant team has paired some of their most popular globally-inspired menu items with our wines for this event.
