The Rhone Rangers ride into Los Angeles on Sunday, June 23, 2013 with more than 50 wineries pouring their American-grown Rhone wines.
Events include a seminar, lunch with the winemakers and a walk-around tasting reception. ANCO Fine Cheese will be providing samples of their imported cheese. The Heirloom LA food truck, famous for their lasagna cupcakes, will have food available for purchase in the courtyard.

The VIP pass includes a ticket to the seminar. Here are details on the seminar, moderator, and wines to be tasted:
