It’s always Rhône O’Clock somewhere.
If you can’t make any of the events for the week but would still like to take part there are a few different ways you can do this:
1. Join us for Rhône O’Clock every day during Rhône Wine Week on twitter, daily prizes and giveaways there too. But when is Rhône O’Clock? Well, we’ll announce that daily over on Twitter. There’s chances to win wine, and more.
There is a grand prize of Dinner in West plus overnight stay at The Twelve for 2 people
We are giving you the chance to win a super-indulgent break for two in the multi-award-winning boutique hotel, The Twelve. The prize includes overnight accommodation and dinner in the world class restaurant West.

3. Have a look at the competitions the guys at theTaste.ie have to celebrate Rhône Wine Week:
The Wyatt Hotel in the heart of glorious Westport is delighted to announce the opening of their brand new Park Terrace Wine Bar featuring bespoke furnishings, gourmet food and exceptional wine selection as well as a range of Whiskey & Gin tasting trays, cocktails and the best selection of craft beers in town!
If in Westport a stop at Park Terrace is a must and we’re sure you will want to keep coming back for more. Check it out on wyatthotel.com or follow the Wyatt for all their news on Instagram or Facebook.
To celebrate this and in the spirit of Rhône Wine Week Ireland, The Wyatt Hotel is offering dinner for 2 and a bottle of Rhône wine.
4. Can’t make it to any of the events? Well you can still take part. We’ll be holding the Alternative Rhône Quiz on twitter (date to be announced but it will be some time during the week). You can enter alone or in a team, we will have the odd bottle of Rhône wine, and books, and corkscrews, and aprons, and did we mention the odd bottle of Rhône wine up for grabs?
It might be worthwhile getting yourself a team mate who’s handy at Google, but it might not. We might ask difficult questions but we might give inventive answers more of a reward. Who knows? Join us.
So get yourself organised; if you’ve a dog give it something to chew, if you’ve children then stick them in front of a film. Get comfy; take your shoes off, pour yourself a glass, and we’ll be off just as soon as we’ve settled on the day.
Look out for #RhoneQuiz and be sure to follow @RhoneWineWeek.
