Bastille Day is the perfect day to break out and enjoy the power and finesse of some fabulous Rhone wines.
Join us on Saturday, July 14th as we showcase the top selections from this year’s Rhone Shootout competition. Amazing Rhone producers will showcase their winning selections for 400 wine loving consumers and invited media and trade at The Old Mint, a National Historic Landmark located in downtown San Francisco.
The Rhone Shootout’s top entries will also be featured in a blind tasting format open to consumers who will pit their palates against the judges and vote for their top picks. Winners will be announced and awards will be presented.
A special tasting of barrel samples from 25 award winning wineries will take place from 11:30 to 12:30. Tasting the barrel samples gives you a peek at how the wine will taste when it is fully aged. Many of the wineries who participate in the Rhone Shootout are very small. This may be your only chance to taste these wines BEFORE the press discovers them and they are gone! A limited number of VIP and trade tickets will be made available for this special segment. TICKETS GO ON SALE MAY 15TH
We will have some very unique 3-Liter and 1.5-Liter bottles to raffle off.
The amazing wines, great food, rockin’ music, and this historic San Francisco setting combine to create a truly unique wine event that will be remembered by all! Don’t miss it!
