The Big Rhône Quiz took place in Dublin on the evening of Monday 7th November 2016 in the Drury Buildings.
We had a fantastic prize again this year, generously sponsored by Inter-Rhône: a trip for the winning team to the Découvertes en Vallée du Rhône 2017 the bi-annual, 4-day tasting event that showcases the best the Rhône has to offer. 10th – 13th April 2017. Prize included flights, accommodation and car hire, as well as entry to the various tastings taking place over the 4 days.
The quiz will be back in some form or another for 2017, watch this space. The Découvertes takes place every second year, the next will be in 2019. Plenty of time to prepare!
