The Grenache gang is at it again! On Sunday night March 10th, you're invited to an evening celebrating Grenache wines (white, pink and red)...and the people who love them. Thirty winemakers from different appellations will be present and pouring at the party, where there will be live music and more.
G Night grew out of the Grenache Symposium, a major meetup of 250 wine professionals from 23 countries who first gathered in 2010. The symposium was the brainchild of Steven Spurrier (a British wine author and expert), Nicole Rolet (of Chêne Bleu in Crestet) and Walter McKinlay (of the Domaine de Mourchon estate in Seguret). Educating the public about the grape and putting more marketing muscle behind the wines were of course high on the agenda. By all accounts, the winemakers are succeeding at both, through events like G Night and other initiatives.
G Night Avignon starts at 6:30 pm but the first part of the evening is for the trade only: buyers, importers, retailers, restaurateurs, sommeliers and other wine pros. From 9:30 pm onward, the party is open to everyone as long as space is available. Tickets are 12€ and reservations are recommended. To reserve: 06 61 60 95 96, email@example.com
G Night will be held at Delirium, at #1 rue Mignard in Avignon.
If you miss G Night in Avignon, there will be one in Dusseldorf on March 24.
