Freakin’ amazing wine event in San Francisco: Rhone Rangers 2012

I don’t pimp many events, simply because there are too many of them and I’d be pimping all week long. And that might get tiring.

But if you live anywhere near San Francisco or will be lucky enough to be traveling there the weekend of March 24 – 25th, you owe it to yourself to check out the Rhone Rangers’ two day wine event. This organization exists to educate wine drinkers about the joys of grapes grown originally in France’s Rhone Valley that now have developed their own American personality. It’s one of the best tastings of its kind.

Five reasons to go to this wine event over others you might spend (or waste) $45 on:

  • 500 wines made from Syrah, Grenache, Viognier, Mourvedre and umpteen more obscure varietals that originated in France’s Rhone Valley
  • 100 wineries, many that are tiny, boutique producers
  • A bacon and wine pairing (an extra charge but, hey, it’s bacon)
  • A comparative tasting of Syrahs from different regions in the U.S. (an extra charge)
  • 2012 rings in the 15th annual wine tasting and adds another, new convenience: you can buy the wine there and take it home! It’s like a huge retail wine shop where you can try it before you buy it. Nice addition.

The event takes place Saturday, March 24th through March 25th. The Grand Tasting is Sunday from 2-5 p.m. but there’s a VIP ticket that allows early entry with the media and wine trade.
