What is The National Tasting Project?
The NTP is a wine education and tasting opportunity for AWS Chapters across the US. Each year the NTP committee chooses a theme and selects several widely available wines that show different styles within the theme. Chapters hold tastings to sample the wines and then see how their ratings compare to other AWS chapters. This year the National Tasting Project features rare and small production wines that will unleash your inner cowboy (or cowgirl)!
Immerse your mind and palate in some of the best boutique wines of the Rhone Rangers. The Rhone Rangers are a group of roughly 150 wineries dedicated to making wines from the 22 grape varieties originally made famous in France’s Rhone Valley. These varieties range from the better-known Syrah and Viognier to the up-and-coming Grenache, Mourvèdre and Roussanne, to more obscure, but delicious, varieties like Counoise and Picpoul.
INSTRUCTIONS AND ORDERING
The Power Point presentations for Tier One and Tier Two tastings will be emailed to those hosting the tastings.
ALL CHAPTERS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE
Our goal this year is for ALL chapters to participate. Your chapter would like to do both Tiers? What a fantastic idea! Two is, after all, better than one. Who can say “No” to more wine!
If you have trouble finding/ordering the wines, email email@example.com; we will be happy to help you obtain the wines for this project!
