The Rhone Valley is often recognized for its full red wines, but it produces excellent white and rose wines as well. The north and south ends of the valley are geographically and climatically different, allowing for the diverse production. The region is also renowned for creating some of France’s finest food. This week, SOHO delves into the Rhone tradition and presents the following wine and tapas:

NV Saint Cosme, Little James Basket, Grenache

Crisped duck leg confit with wine poached cherries and toasted brioche

 

2008 Perrin et Fils, La Vieille Ferme, Cotes du Luberon

Chilled chicken ballantine stuffed with black truffle and pistachio, served with a marion blackberry sauce

2004 Domaine du Pesquier, Gigondas

Sauteed escargots with roasted garlic and puffed pastry, served with a mornay sauce

 

The Rhone Valley wine and tapas will be available at SOHO through September 22. Guests can sample a full flight for $17 (three three-ounce tastings and a cheese plate). Or, guests may pair a tapas and glass of wine for $12. The wines and tapas are available individually as well ($9/glass and $6/tapas).

See you soon!
