Want to know more about wines from the Chateauneuf-de-Pape region of France? (And wondering how to pronounce it for starters?) I sat down with James King of the Texas Wine School earlier this week to find out more about what you can expect from the the wines of this region in southern France.
We talked about the grapes that go into the wines, the terroir of the region (and what that means), what the wines typically taste like and how much you can expect to spend on a great bottle. (I think you’ll be happy to hear the answer to that one if you have any interest in exploring these wines.)
James also shares information on two outstanding vintages to seek out when buying Chateauneuf-de-Pape wines and we discuss the need to age… or not.

If you’re in Houston and would like to know more about the region and try some of the wines, James will be hosting a Chateauneuf-de-Pape class on Monday, June 10, for $60 per person. Click over to reserve your spot.
Can’t make that class, but want to know what else the Texas Wine School is offering this summer? Click over to see roundup of the Texas Wine School classes.
