Vive La France - A Bastille Day Wine Tasting - $45pp - Saturday 14th July - 2pm to 4pm

Regular price $45.00 Sale

The breadth and variety of French wine is simply breathtaking. Apart from the high profile grandeur of wines from places such as Burgundy, Bordeaux and The Rhone Valley, centuries of wine-making and wine life make almost every square mile of this vast country a treasure trove of delicious, interesting and, thankfully, not always expensive wine. In this tasting we are showcasing French wines which express their region, their traditions and their sense of place.

Please join us for an afternoon of French wines, French finger food and a casual saunter through the country's incredible wines (and maybe a little football talk if that's your thing).

You'll taste more than 20 amazing French wines over the course of two hours.  Which means it's just like a cocktail party. Actually, it is a cocktail party. And because it is Bastille Day, we'll be giving away a special prize to the best-dressed Francophile!
