Chateauneuf-du-Pape – revered home of some of France’s most impressive classic reds and whites, and they’re not cheap. So far so good, but just ten kilometres north-east of Chateauneuf we find a beautiful, tranquil sun-drenched valley sharing the same unusual terrain, grape varieties, climate and 2000-year-old traditions as the great estates of Chateauneuf, in fact, many of the wines here are made by those same Chateauneuf growers.

Gigondas, Vacqeyras, Rasteau, Cairanne to name a few, these ‘Chateauneuf Satellite” appellations constitute what is, without doubt, one of the most exiting historic wine regions in the world. Unlike Bordeaux, the wines are delicious when young, unlike Burgundy, they are exceptionally good value, indeed, this may be last bastion of great value in the classic wine regions of France.

The reds and Grenache-based and hearty, redolent of the woody herbs and pines of this gorgeous corner of Provence. The whites, intense and muscular, of Burgundian complexity, but half the price!

So, come and taste these fascinating wines, against each other and of course their more famous neighbour, Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

Over 18s only. Venue: Cambridge University Centre CB2 1RU ground floor bar. Next to the Mill pub. The venue has step-free access throughout.
