Wines from The Riviera – French and Italian
Where can you find stunning scenery of glorious beaches and wild mountains – plus great hiking between the two, medieval towns, astounding cuisine, and stupendous wine? The towns of Portofino, San Remo, Cannes, St. Tropez…? The Mediterranean coastline between Capo Corvo and Cassis! Or, in terms of major cities, basically between Genoa and Marseilles. In wine terms? These encompass Liguria and Provence.
Fresh from a trip along the Riviera, Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and Wining Archaeologist will guide you through 5 iconic wines of the Riviera, and their unique histories. We’ll taste:
- Château Bas, Provence Rosé Pierres du Sud (2017)
- Sulauze, Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Galinette Blanc (2016)
- Château Grand Boise, Côtes de Provence Rouge (2014)
- Punta Crena, Pigato Riviera Ligure di Ponente Vigneto Ca’ da Rena (2014)
- Poggio dei Gorleri, Ormeasco di Pornassio Peinetti (2012)
