Regional Showcase: Rhone Valley

Discover the birthplace of Shiraz and the GSM Blend

Welcome to the Rhone Valley

The Somm Guide to the birthplace of Shiraz.

To prepare our Rhone Valley Tasting Pack, we thoroughly researched the history, appellations and grape varieties this historic and reverred region. We travelled to France, met with three dozen winemakers and tasted hundreds of wines. We selected 45 to shortlist, which we distilled down to the top 6 through a series of blind tastings just outside of Avignon. These wines are a phenomenal collection of aged wines which demonstrate why the Rhone Valley is so famous. We also paired up with fantastic Sydney Chef Jay Kim to design 6 recipes which pair beautifully with our selected wines.
