Reboule du Rhône
Reboule du Rhône
Join us November 15-18, 2018 to celebrate the wines of the Northern Rhône Valley, for a great cause.
‘La Reboule’ is a traditional end of harvest celebration in France’s Northern Rhône Valley where grape harvesters, winemakers, and cellar staff get together at the end of a successful vintage to toast with great food, wine, & revelry.
