Introducing “The Varietal Show” with Somm Chris Sawyer!

Well it is about bloody time, right? Let’s just start talking to wine personalities about their work and have a good time with it, which I already like to do anywhere anytime 24/7!

This is my inaugural discussion on “The Varietal Show” which features Eric Sussman of Radio-Coteau and County Line Vineyards. Relaxing in an empty dining room at Gravenstein Grill, we practice social distancing as we taste and talk!

Hospice du Rhône 2020: Video, Virtual & Rescheduled!

We can all still celebrate Hospice du Rhône 2020 in a few ways.  You can start with this informative video I made a few years back about the wines and region.  After that, scroll down for some updates to the HdR calendar that you can partake in this week!

Now start your own #RhôneAtHome campaign on social media.  Share what you are drinking with other Rhône-fans, and show your support of Rhône producers.  Use the hashtag @hospicedurhone, and HdR will share your post!

This all leads up to the BIG virtual cheers on Saturday, April 25th 2020:  Join to celebrate the wines, people and regions that embody Rhône varieties!  Zoom link to cheers with us will be posted on the HdR website, and sent to their mailing list.

Lastly, be sure to add the new dates of Hospice du Rhône to your calendar on April 22 – 24, 2021 at the Paso Robles Event Center in California.  (All visitor and exhibitor tickets, along with sponsor partnerships will remain valid.)

Cheers, hope to see you all LIVE next year!
