Become a Rhone Ranger
Membership in the Rhone Rangers provides a variety of benefits for wineries, consumers, growers, and associates.
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. In 2012 our tasting events will take place in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City.
You\'ll also receive a 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.

Grower Members are recognized in the tasting program and on the web site (with a link to your web site, if applicable).
