Innovation, passion, and dedication are what drives Jean-Luc and Anne Colombo, whose contributions to Rhône Valley winemaking has remained unparalleled since 1984. Colombo’s approach in the northern appellation of Cornas – where Syrah is the star - is nothing short of revolutionary. His expressive, character-driven wines have helped breathe new life into this highly-prestigious and acclaimed appellation.

Join us as Jean-Luc takes us through an in-depth dive into the Cornas appellation, featuring a horizontal of three different 100% Syrah Cornas wines from the 2017 vintage, as well as a taste of the special 2007 vintage from his library collection. Jean-Luc will also share insight into neighboring Saint-Peray, and his top white wine from this exciting appellation - a gorgeous blend of Marsanne and Roussanne.
