From our organizers:
‘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.
Sommeliers Dustin Wilson & Thomas Pastuszak are bringing this storied tradition along with the best producers from the Northern Rhône to New York City on November 15th – 18th, 2018 via a weekend of fantastic wine tastings, dinners & festivities. Reboule du Rhône will showcase these amazing producers & their special wines for enthusiasts & collectors alike, while raising money for a charity Thomas & Dustin both share great support for: No Kid Hungry.
180 Maiden Lane is the location for many of the Reboule du Rhône events this year. It offers incredible views of the East River & the Brooklyn Bridge along with a large, open atrium; perfect for a top-notch wine celebration.
