Deerprint Wine and Bistro proprietor, Ed Donovan, educates approximately 30 guests who attended a wine tasting on November 30, at the facility in La Veta. The event focused on red wines of the Rhone Valley, which runs in France along the French and Italian border. The Rhone Valley runs from the Swiss Alps in the north to the Mediterranean, where it empties near Aries. Guests tasted five wines of the region, with each bottle being kept in a brown paper bag as this was a blind tasting so as to not influence the tasters. These tastings typically run $35 per person and include tapas served with each wine. Deerprint’s winter hours are Friday and Saturday, from 5 to 9 pm. Photo by Bob Kennemer.
