EVENT DESCRIPTION
______

Syrah (Shiraz) - “A grape whose skin has a dark blue to bluish-black color that was originally grown in the northern valley of the Rhone and is now widely grown elsewhere (as in California and Australia)” – Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Like the other red wines of the Rhone category, Syrah is a very misunderstood and underappreciated grape varietal.

This event includes a blind tasting of 18-21 blends to create an un-biased, exciting, and fun Syrah tasting experience. After the tasting, the blends will be revealed, as well as your unique preferences and likings of the wines. Which did you prefer… which style?  Which brands??? Expand your palate and knowledge of the delightful Rhone Valley Syrah.

All tastings include a petite cheese plate… and many laughs.  You do not need to be a wine geek to participate, but wine geeks will appreciate the efforts we make, the quality of the wine we pour and the service we provide.  Let’s bring the best in the business together and enjoy one wild and crazy flight… of 18-21 Blind Rhone Wines. All levels are welcome to participate in this enjoyable event. Both beginners and experts will appreciate the quality of the wines provided and the overall tasting experience. Let’s join together for a friendly competition and flavorful flight of 18-21 Rhone wines!
