Industry Event: Fifth Annual Rhône Walk-Around Tasting

 Tribeca Grill's Fourth Annual Rhône Walk-Around Tasting
Monday, August 3, 2009
5:30-7:30 PM

Loft Walk-Around Tasting  $50

Join us at Tribeca Grill's Loft as we taste 25 of the best wines from the finest producers in the Rhône Valley.  We are showcasing some of our favorites from the more than 500 Rhône wines on our list.
We are featuring legendary wines from Jean-Louis Chave, including his Côtes du Rhône Mon Coeur, Crozes Hermitage, and Saint-Joseph, as well as his highly sought after Hermitage.  In addition, we will show some wines from the Perrin family, including their flagship Château Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape. The newly revitalized negociant Vidal Fleury is presenting a selection of both Northern and Southern Rhônes and, additionally, we will have a vertical selection of 2004-2007 vintages of Domaine Pontifical Châteauneuf du Pape. For the second year, we will have a blind tasting table with five reds served from different appellations ranging in price.  See if you can guess the producer, appellation or vintage of these wines.
Representatives from Crush Wine and Spirits, our retail store on 57th Street, will be on hand at the tasting with an offering of superior Rhône wines for sale from their extensive collection. 



Following the tasting, guests will receive 20% off of any Rhône wines ordered from our list with dinner downstairs in our main dining room.  Executive Chef Stephen Lewandowski will offer a 3-course prix fixe dinner for $35 that will be a great match with wines from the Rhône region.  
Tribeca Grill's wine list of 1,800 selections includes a large selection of wines from the Rhône and features the largest list of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the world (more than 300 different wines).  At The Grill we love Rhône wines, not only because they taste great but because they pair wonderfully with our menu and offer a fantastic value!
