Become a Rhone Ranger
Membership in the Rhone Rangers provides a variety of benefits for wineries, growers, associate business members and consumers (Sidekicks).
Pour your wines for thousands of consumers, trade and media people who are all looking for Rhone varietal wines. Membership allows you to show your wines at one of our grand tastings, though you can pay a bit extra if you’d like to participate in more events. Upcoming events will take place in Los Angeles (November 6-7, 2015) and San Francisco (June 10 & 11, 2016).
You'll also be included in the forum for sharing ideas with cutting-edge producers around the country, access to distributor, retailer, and restaurant members, and the services of the Rhone Rangers organization for promoting your brand.
Any winery in the United States that makes wine from the 22 Rhone Ranger varietals is eligible to join.

Growers of Rhone varieties are welcome to join the Rhone Ranger organization. Grower members receive access to hundreds of wineries focused on the varietals you grow, as well as free passes to the grand tasting of your choice, so that you can mingle, taste wines and talk about selling your grapes.
Grower Members are recognized on the web site (with a link to your web site, if applicable).
