Rhone Wine Dinner: Tales of the River Bank

Friday, August 14, 2015  |  6:30PM
$185 plus tax
Limited to 18 guests

Forming a corridor between The Mediterranean and Northern Europe, the Rhône Valley extends over six French départements. The region draws its strength from this rich and powerful river, which shapes the landscape of the the Massif Central, the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea.

Often classified as one of the three best regions in France (along with Bordeaux and Burgundy) the wines produced in Cotes du Rhône are crafted and inspired by a variety of grapes and terroirs. The region is also one of the first to produce wine in France. The first vine was planted by vine growers coming from Marseille and because of the Rhône river, it was easy to send the bottles of wine to an harbor on the Mediterranean sea.

In the middle age, monasteries began to manage vineyards such as Châteauneuf, which was renamed Châteauneuf du Pape when the Popes used to spend their holidays there. This was a clear sign of recognition for the region.

Join us for a Multi-course dinner paired with Rhône wines featured by Wine Director and Sommelier at The Rittenhouse Hotel & LaCroix Restaurant, Justin Timsit, who will lead us through this experience.
