The full title of this tasting actually is “When in Rhone, do as the Romans Did”, because although some people do say “What did the Romans do for us?”, the answer is a lot, and that includes the making of wine in France as well as their innovative plumbing – if you know what I mean!

I’ve always loved Rhone wines, and the fascinating story of how they came to be included Popes, slaves, a lot of Romans and wine. And what wines they came to be too – these days the wines are rich, spicy and full of wonderful sun-baked fruit. We’ll be looking at some great examples from this classic French region. See you there! Theo
