Where: Ezov - 2708 E Cesar Chavez St, 78702
Join Stéphane Vedeau, owner and vintner of La Ferme du Mont for a tasting and overview of the major AOPs of the Southern Rhône.
Stéphane Vedeau pivoted a career as a professional soccer player to wine in 1987. He started out in the Languedoc Roussillon and moved to the Rhône in the early 2000’s. While his initial vineyard sources were leased, he has come to own a majority of his vineyards through grass roots methods with a particular focus on high elevation sites in the Southern Rhône. The press has come to praise him as “one of the young, energetic winemakers of Chateauneuf” and his wines spoken of as, “if Chambolle were Chateaneuf.”
In this ATX Somms seminar, we’ll take a tour of the AOC’s of the Southern Rhone from single-site Côtes du Rhone, Vinsobres, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, and Chateauneuf du Pape. Keeping an eye on various styles and innovation that is occurring in the region. Stéphane is one of the most qualified people to speak on this subject!
