The Big Rhône Quiz will take place in Dublin on the evening of Monday 7th November 2016 in the Drury Buildings. The prize you can win, generously sponsored by Inter-Rhône, is simply fantastic: A trip for your team to the Découvertes en Vallée du Rhône 2017 the bi-annual, 4-day tasting event that showcases the best the Rhône has to offer (10th – 13th April 2017).
The prize includes flights, accommodation and car hire, as well as entry to the various tastings taking place over the 4 days. Last year, it brought together: 9 tastings, 645 winegrowers and traders, and nearly 2,200 visitors from 31 countries, and this year it promises to keep growing!
To get studying, your best resource for preparation would be the Inter-Rhone website. Find out all about the history, the appellations and the grape varieties of this amazing region. You can also visit the new e-learning centre – made in the form of a video game, the Rhône e-learning program will take you on a visit the whole Rhône Valley and grow your knowledge about Rhône wines. Through puzzles, quizzes, challenges… you’ll learn the facts of the vineyard: landscape, people and culture, history and heritage of the region.
This event is part of of the activities planned for Rhône Wine Week Ireland, a celebration of the wines of the Rhône Valley to take place from the 29th of October to the 5th of November. Click here for more information.
