Like two very different siblings, the Northern Rhône and Southern Rhône wines present their own unique (and lovable) personalities. Nature vs Nurture? A little of both. 

The Northern Rhône (a more continental climate) brings us Crozes Hermitage and Côte Rôtie. The Southern Rhône (a more Mediterranean climate) offers crowd pleasers Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas.

What are the differences between exclusively Syrah-based Northern Rhône wines, and the Grenache-based blends from the Southern Rhône? We’ll get acquainted with the archetypical characteristics, then we’ll try our hand at distinguishing them blind. We risk impressing ourselves.

Thomas Boothe's, extensive knowledge and passion for wine and his innovative teaching style have been fueled through work and study in a variety of wine-related fields.
