What opportunities for Rhone wines in the United States, San Francisco (CA)

It is true that, in recent years, American consumers have appreciated the Côtes-du-Rhône

The growing interest in imported wines goes hand in hand with the increase in sales of blended wines. Demand is less and less focused on soil and grape varieties and takes into account elements such as the appellation, the terroir or the production process if it is atypical. They were helped, on the one hand, by editorial advertising, particularly that of critic Robert Parker, and, on the other hand, by an excellent price/performance ratio when compared to Bordeaux wines or Burgundy grand crus.
