Online Pass for TWO - Rhone Valley Reds
The Rhone Valley is a beautiful area, home to the warming sort of red wines that happen to be perfect for a summer barbecue.
From wines like Cotes du Rhone to the superior 'Crus' of the Rhone such as Gigondas, Vacqueyras or Chateaneuf du Pape - all the red wines in this region use the same roster of grape varieties. What changes is the quality of the vienyard, the degree of care shown in the winemaking and the actual percentage of the different grapes in the blend.
These are wines that are fruity and usually not too tannic, soft from the consistent warm sun but sometimes infused with savoury herby notes or maybe a hint of raisins.
