ALL RED WINE CLUB

AUGUST 2021

ICONIC BLENDS SHOW THEIR COLORS

Cotes du Rhone + Valpolicella are hands down two of the most recognized red wine blends in the world. Anchored by Grenache and Corvina, respectively, they are both wines that will always seem best made with their most common partner grapes despite the potential they may have on their own. But there is no pinning down what that particular amalgamate expression needs to be, which is the magic of blends in the first place – anything goes. 

 

In this month’s All Red Club we present the light and the dark side of  delicious Cotes du Rhone, as well as the beautifully bright and rich side of Valpolicella. Best thing is, you don’t have to choose which you like best, it’s all simply there to be pondered and enjoyed.
