Description

The price above is per household and includes everything you'll need for this tasting, which we'll deliver to your doorstep ahead of this event.

The two ends of the Rhône Valley are, in vinous terms, dissimilar siblings: one lyrical, generally focused on the single varietal and seemingly taking a stylistic lead from the neighbouring Burgundian vineyards; the other broad, expansive and generous, glorying in a varied palette of grape varieties and a distinctly Mediterranean warmth. Join your host on a virtual adventure featuring a range of growers and explore the great wines of this region in which promises to be a fascinating and pleasurable experience.

We will arrange for a delivery of a selection of wines from Rhône, a set of glassware and a corkscrew to be sent directly to your home. In addition, we have partnered with Paxton & Whitfield, who will deliver three artisan cheeses to accompany the wines in the tasting. On the evening of the event, you’ll log in via Zoom where our expert host will take you through the wines.

The ticket price includes full-sized bottles (75cl) of all the wines, so you can share the experience with family and friends. Your Berry Bros. & Rudd host will skilfully guide you through a tasting of three of the wines from the six-bottle selection. The virtual tasting will start at 6.30pm and last for one hour and 15 minutes. Once a ticket has been booked, we’ll email you to confirm the details of your delivery. Hosted by Olivia Bodle, Fine Wine Specialist.

Wines to be tasted on the evening:

2019 Côtes du Rhône Villages, Les Cassagnes Blanc, Château La Nerthe
2008 Ermitage Jubilée 200 Ans 1808-2008, Maison Chapoutier, Rhône
