The Rhone and Southern France have had the good luck of a number of very good vintages, as of late, and no other family really exemplifies the region as well as the Perrin family of Chateauneuf du Pape. With multiple generations behind, ahead and currently in charge of some of the top vineyard locations across the region, the Perrins continue to deliver some of the most exciting wines of the entire region – and with some of the best values anywhere. Join us as we explore some of their newest creations and more traditional offerings, for the inaugural date for the 2019 Lunch Club Season.
