“Legendary.” “Masterful.” “Extraordinary.” These are the words you hear again and again from experts and critics about the winemaking and wines of E. Guigal. Founded by Etienne Guigal and managed today by son and grandson Marcel and Philippe Guigal, this estate led the post WWII re-birth of the Northern Rhone and continues to make great wines from Cote Rotie to Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

Come experience some of France’s greatest wines as Christophe Courteaud from Guigal’s US importer, Vintas, leads us through the history, vineyards, and wines of this great estate. We’ll sample seven whites and reds from the Southern and Northern Rhone, including wines from legendary vineyards like Cote Rotie and Hermitage and bottlings from St. Joseph, Chateauneuf du Pape and more.

It’s a great line-up of terrific wines, including great values to enjoy tonight and masterpieces you’ll want to hold onto for years. As always we’ll serve light snacks and have plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
