The Rhône is a mighty river, and the Rhône valley is home to a variety of climates, landscapes and soil types. The southern part of the valley – the Rhône méridional – in particular produces an array of different grapes, and it's there that our next Monthly Tasting takes us.

We'll visit three of our favourite producers from southern France (from both banks of the Rhône): Château Gigognan, Domaine La Ligiere and Château de Coccinelles. After a sparkling wine reception we'll taste 6 wines (2 whites, 3 reds, 1 sweet wine) together with our patented humble platters of artisan cheeses, meats and olives.

Tales include ex-rugby player master blenders, an incredible vineyards rescued from an ignoble future as part of a co-op, and an army of ladybirds.
