We were fortunate to have in our studio, Marc Perrin, who together with his brother Pierre own the famous Château de Beaucastel in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region of France.
The terroir here is quite unique, so join us as we discuss this area carved by the Rhone River during the Miocene period, which left an alluvium soil nearly covered with rounded stones known as galets. The topography, combined with the warm dry Mistral winds of southern France creates an amazing incubator for Grenache, the primary grape of the region.
We also spend some time discussing the Tablas Creek Creek project in Paso Robles – a successful joint effort with importer Robert Haas, and we will also find out about Marc’s role with GrapeRadio Europe.
