Rhone Wine Tasting
Back to Trapp Family Lodge
Join the Trapp Family Lodge in their Wine Cellar for a Wines of the Rhone Valley tasting on Saturday, June 1, 2019.
The Rhone Valley has been producing wine since around 600 BC. Production dropped significantly when Rome pulled out of the region but rose again when the Anti-Popes set up shop in Avignon in the 13th century. The Duke of Burgundy was so threatened by the success of Rhone valley wines that he forbade their import into his region calling them “very small and miserable wines.” He was wrong of course.
The Rhone Valley continues to produce big, voluptuous reds as well as full bodied interesting whites. The tasting will feature two whites and three reds.
Price is $20. Please call or see the front desk to place reservations (802) 253-5742. Doors open at 4 p.m. They suggest you arrive no later than 5 p.m. to avoid feeling rushed. People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. The event ends at 6 p.m.
