Join us for a wine tasting and luncheon with the prestigious master sommelier, Anthony Taylor, of Maison Gabriel Meffre in Gigondas. His theme for our event will be “A Discovery of the famous ‘Crus’ of the Rhone Valley”. We will have the opportunity to taste six wines from some of the finest appellations (Condrieu, Gigondas, Châteauneuf du Pape and Côte Rôtie) of this historical wine region – two white and four red.
The wine tasting will start at 11am and will be followed by a luncheon at 1pm, during which Anthony will introduce us to a few delicious, easy-drinking wines, including two from Gabriel Meffre’s Chateau Grand Escalion estate near Nimes.
Parking: Le Saint Paul, where the ACR has held annual meetings, has ample parking space. (Entrance to parking is across from La Réserve).
- Gravlax de Saumon, Crème Yaourt et Soja, Salade Fraicheur

Important: This event is reserved for ACR members who have paid their 2021 membership dues. As we can accommodate only 40 people, please register as soon as possible.
Our ACR Secretary and Legal Advisor, Sandra van Essche, is the Event Manager for this event. She is a childhood friend of Anthony Taylor and it is thanks to her that he has proposed to do a wine tasting for the American Club of the Riviera.
Covid/ Sanitary Measures: Since March 2020, sanitary measures have been put in place in accordance with French government regulations. The Hotel Saint-Paul requires strict adherence to the measures. Subject to further evolution or any changes in the current regulations, the hotel requires all guests to wear a mask in the hotel at all times (except when seated for the tasting and lunch).
As of August 1, 2021, a ‘Sanitary Pass’ will be required to enter a restaurant in France. Please be sure to comply with the requirements in effect at the time of this event. In the unfortunate case that we are forced to cancel the event, full reimbursement will be made to those who will have paid.
I look forward to welcoming you at Hotel Le Saint-Paul on 13th August.
Very best regards,
