The Rhone Valley comes to the North of France

On April 20th, Benson’s Lyon team organized a professional tasting for members of Rhône Vignobles, a collective of winegrowers from France’s Rhône Valley, in the village of Touquet-Paris-Plage in the North of France. The winegrowers were there to present their current vintage to local trade.

Around a colorful buffet prepared by chef Fabrice Gardin of Le Picardy restaurant, wine professionals and journalists from Nord-Pas-De-Calais, Belgium and the UK tasted wines from the 14 winegrowers. It was a unique opportunity to share the wines of the Rhône Valley with restauranteurs, sommeliers and retail shop owners who are not often able to travel to the region themselves.
