The Rhone Rangers is a 501 c6 non-profit organization. The live and silent auctions help sustain the organization’s mission to advocate the American Rhone variety wines.
An integral part of the Rhone Rangers mission is to give back and cultivate new ambassadors for American Rhone wines. A portion of the monies raised during events and live and silent auctions go to support The Rhone Rangers Scholarship Fund.
Each year, in conjunction with The James Beard Foundation, a scholarship is awarded to an individual in the wine industry to travel, learn and study – all focused on Rhone varieties in America. The James Beard Rhone Rangers Professional Study / Travel Grant is a joint effort by the two organizations to promote greater understanding of American Rhone wines in the food and restaurant community. With education and raised awareness, we can continue to bring attention to the fascinating and beautiful American Rhone wine movement. Thank you for supporting the Rhone Rangers.
