The Rhône Valley of France is a diverse and fascinating wine region; for this #winePW, we’ll focus on the wines and winemakers of the Southern Rhône. As many parts of the world welcome the new spring season, we’ll choose fresh, seasonal spring foods to pair with regional wines. During the April #winePW, you’ll find new meal ideas to brighten your table and “sample” wines to make the meal a welcoming ritual. You’ll also learn about the region, the wines, the winemakers and the traditions of France’s Southern Rhône Valley from the following bloggers, writers and experts:

David of Cooking Chat started this event in June of 2014, and every month since then this group of wine and food lovers have had a great time! For more background, check out the original post announcing Wine Pairing Weekend.

On the second Saturday of each month, a group of bloggers who are passionate about the way good wine enhances a meal come together to blog about a wine pairing they have done. Each month has a different Wine Pairing Weekend theme to focus the pairings. I’m the host of this month’s #winePW, a celebration of the theme: Spring Meal Pairings for Southern Rhône Wines.

Join us as we share blog posts and experience live Twitter chat at 11 a.m. Eastern Time (10 a.m. Central) on Saturday, April 9, 2016.

Anyone interested is encouraged to join in the chat: food-lovers, travel-nuts, winemakers, Rhône residents, wine-lovers…please join us with the hashtag #winePW.

  1. Thanks for the food pairing article. Would you be able to share with me what sort of cheese s would pair well for southern rhone wines as I am conducting a wine lesson next week and I would love to try them out with some nice cheeses.


    1. Camembert or Comté would be high on my list for Southern Rhône red wines.

      I’d love to hear about the wines you choose. Wonderful lesson!

      Thanks for reading and commenting!
