Big Châteauneuf Event Coming Up...

The Young Winemakers Association of Châteauneuf-du-Pape will host the third annual Les Printemps de Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Saturday and Sunday, March 31 and April 1, from 10 am to 7 pm.  More than 75 domaines and châteaux will be featured. Meet the producers, taste the wines, get a feel for the variety and quality of this historic appellation--and perhaps win a few bottles as well. For French speakers, there will be tasting workshops. Plus, this year there will be a Master Class in English (Saturday, 3 to 5 pm), in which you'll learn all about the terroir and of course, taste some terrific vintages. The Master Class is 25€ per person and you must book ahead, by email (see below). Admission to Les Printemps is 7€ per person, which gives access to the lounge and all tastings.  For the venue and other info, click here. For questions and Master Class registration:
