January 15 Wine Club: superb Northern Rhônes

"If I could only drink from one region in the world, it would be the Rhône," Maxine Borcherding, a genuine wine enthusiast and friend of the Alliance, once said.

Discover why in this tasting of Northern Rhônes, to be followed in February by Southern Rhônes. We'll take a leisurely tour through these fabled vineyards, including wines from superstar vintner Vincent Paris.

Hoke Harden will be your guide and sommelier. Hoke is a Certified Specialist of Wine, attended the  FWS Master Program for Vins de Provence and the Maison de Rosé, is a US Ambassador for Pineau des Charentes, and a BNIC Certified Cognac Educator.

The Alliance Wine Club meets monthly,  usually on the third Sunday of the month. This event will have seminar seating.

• Domaine Rostaing Viognier, Les Lézardes, IGP Collines Rhodaniennes
