San Francisco Wine School is partnering with the Wine Scholar Guild to provide a unique and dynamic learning experience to master the wines of the Rhône Valley. Of Grapes and Grandeur: Expressions of Rhône Terroir is workshop #1 in a three-part lecture and tutored tasting series here, at San Francisco Wine School. The workshops are included as the review session for the Wine Scholar Guild's Rhône Master-Level Program, but may also be taken a la carte by those not enrolled in the program.
Most people think “red” when they think “Rhône” and with good reason! But we will first explore Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne and Muscat as they express their Rhône terroirs. All of these grapes call the Rhône home for a reason and their roots are deep. Next, we will focus on Syrah, the shining star of the Northern Rhône. This grape manifests itself differently based on location and blending partners. We will examine the many sides of this multi-faceted grape while comparing and contrasting the red Crus of the North.

This workshop is 2-hours long and includes 12 wines.
