VIP Tasting 2 - 5:30pm and Seminar 1 And Now For Something Completely Different: The New Wave of Single-Variety Rhone Wines  11am - 12pm - $125

If you drink Rhone reds, you’ve probably tasted a smidge of Counoise in a blend here and there. But to taste it on its own, you’re better off looking to the Rhone Rangers, who are now making single-variety wines from grapes that rarely get single billing in the Rhone itself. This panel, moderated by Luke Sykora—the California critic for Wine & Spirits Magazine—will explore lesser-known Rhone varieties like Counoise, Carignan and Picpoul, all of which are on the rise in California, making nuanced, food-friendly, exciting wines.

VIP Tasting 2 - 5:30pm and Seminar 2 - The Pioneers of Rhone Rangers: 3 - 4pm - $125

This invite-only seminar will be a fun and lively discussion of how a small group of vanguard grape farmers transformed what began as fence line discussions about growing Rhone grapes 20 years ago into a full-fledged movement that has forever changed the American wine landscape and continues to shape its future. Panelists include Patrick Comiskey, author of American Rhone: How Maverick Winemakers Changed the Way Americans Drink and founding members of the Rhone Rangers.
