French Wine Scholar - Rhone Evening
Our French Wine Scholar (FWS) evenings are in-depth tastings on all the key regions and lesser-known regions of France. The FWS study and certification program is geared for members of the wine trade and avid French wine enthusiasts. We are offering the opportunity to attend single evening sessions of our French Wine Scholar course - perfect for those who want to experience an evening of the course before committing to the full course or for anyone who wants to learn more about a specific region in France.
The narrow, cooler slopes of the Northern Rhone with its famous Hermitage and Côte Rôtie appellations produce some of the most sublime Syrah wines in the world, while the vaster and warmer Southern Rhone offers up the great Grenache blends of Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine and other rich wine appellations. Learn what crafts these expressive wines and how such distinct differences are manifested in them through history, culture, geology, geography, topography, climate and much more.
On this evening, you will taste 8-10 wines that showcase the different varietals, wine-making styles and terroir of this iconic wine region.
Who should consider attending this evening? This evening is ideal for those:
- Considering, currently studying or have completed the WSET Level 3 and/or WSET Diploma
- Who hold an enthusiastic interest for the French wine industry
Cheeses and meats representative of those served in the region will also be available to enjoy during the tasting.
