Nothing Petite About It...

This past Tuesday I attended the Rhone Rangers’ “Varietal Nights” event at Brecon Estate. Rhone Rangers is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to promoting American Rhone varietal wine. Each month, the Paso Robles chapter features one varietal, and each participating winery brings an example of that varietal to showcase. Vivant provides cheese, often there is live music, and participants can taste as many examples of one varietal as possible in a two hour time frame. Great fun is had by all.
