rhone_rangers_bannerIt’s no secret that I love America’s Rhone-style wines. So I’m thrilled that the Rhone Rangers will be visiting Washington, DC on Thursday, June 18! They’ll be visiting the Long View Gallery at 1234 9th St NW.

Terroirist is able to offer FOUR TICKETS (as two pairs) to the Grand Tasting. From 7:00pm till 9:00pm, attendees will have the chance to taste more than 80 wines from Rhone Rangers member wineries.

VIP tickets are $90 in advance. A selection of appetizers will be available for VIPs, who can arrive at 5:30. General Admission tickets, which cover the tasting from 7:00pm till 9:00pm, are $65 in advance. For a 20% discount, use the promo code “terroirist.”

Earlier that day, from 10:30am till noon, I’ll be leading a panel discussion exploring “American Rhone Wines for Summer Sipping.” The discussion will feature a tasting of eight different wines. If you can sneak away from your desk, please join! Tickets are just $35.

To have a chance to win a FREE PAIR OF TICKETS (a $130 value!), just leave a comment naming your FAVORITE American Rhone-style wine. For an extra entry, tweet to me (@terroiristblog) and the Rhone Rangers (@RhoneRangers) with your favorite American Rhone-style wine, using the hashtag #RRDC15.

The contest ends Wednesday, June 10, at midnight ET. Good luck!

  1. Being from VA, I feel that I should definitely say Viognier. Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, VA produces an amazing example fermented in a concrete egg.

  2. My favorite American Rhone variety wine is John Lockwood’s Enfield Wine Co. Syrah. My favorite American Rhone variety wine maker is William Allen of Two Shepherds.. I didn’t want to name a favorite, but I just did

  3. My favorite US rhone white is grenache blanc these days. The Tercero and Tablas Creek versions are great.

  4. Tablas Creek Espirit de Tablas!

  5. My favorite Rhone style wines:
    La Clarine Farms Sumu Kaw Syrah
    Donkey and Goat Fenaughty Syrah
    Quivira Rose

  6. I’m a northern Rhone junkie, so for me it’s the Fausse Piste Garde Mange Syrah.

  7. The Miner Family! La Diligence (Syrah) -Stagecoach Vinyard and their Simpson Vineyard Viognier.
