  • This fourth edition will be on June 14th, from 10:00pm-11:30pm, and we will taking you to the historic region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape lead by Christophe Bristiel of Chateau La Nerthe.
    Five centuries ago, in 1560 to be exact… the first vines of Chateau La Nerthe were planted by the Tulle de Villefrache family. Through the years a castle was built on the property and many more grenache vines were planted around it. The domain gradually became one of the leading wine properties of the Rhone Valley. They were the first to ship wines in bottles and export to the United State in 1786. Talk about history! In 1985 the Richards family brought the renaissance of ‘Avant Garde and Excellence’ approach to the Chateau aim to revive the original values and implement new innovation. Want to learn more about the history and the future of this famous region and chateau? Come join us at SommLounge!
