After a successful spotlight on the red wines of the Northern Rhone Valley, the Acker team is back once more to discuss the somewhat under the radar white wines from both the Northern and Southern Rhone. From Viognier to Marsanne and Roussanne in the Northern regions of Condrieu, Hermitage and beyond, to the complex blends of Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc in the south, these wines often lie in the shadows of their red wine cellar mates, though they offer tremendous diversity and pairing possibilities at the table. These wines are unctuous yet subtle, full of textural pleasure, and some of our favorite white wine that are available to add to your cellar and lay down! Join us as we take a longitudinal look at the white wines of the Rhone Valley and introduce you to some bottles you’ve never tried before!
