The Northern Rhône, one of the oldest wine-producing areas of France is located along the Rhône River between the towns of Vienne to the north and Valence in the south. In a nearly continuous stretch, the Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Château Grillet, St-Joseph, Cornas and St-Peray vineyards cover the steep, terraced hills sloping down toward the river from the west. Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage vineyards occupy the eastern bank. The single red grape variety is Syrah, which produces dark red, tannin-rich wines. They are long-lived and very full-bodied. Several white varieties also grow in this area, predominately Viognier along with Roussanne and Marsanne. We will sample several wines from the Northern Rhône Valley.

An informal and educational food and wine event for everyone interested in expanding their knowledge and love of fine wines. We will cover some basic topics relating to wine appreciation. Taste and compare wines from around the world. This is the perfect place for wine beginners to learn about wine and why it can be a life long, enjoyable experience. Experienced wine lovers can also benefit by using this evening to brush up on their wine knowledge and tasting skills. There is always something to learn about wine.

The Beanery Cafe will serve an assortment of appetizers with the wines. All wines are served in Riedel stemware. No product purchase is required. You do not have to be a member of the Northern Lights Wine Club to attend any wine event at the Beanery Cafe.
