Weekly Event     Wine    

The longest river in France flows over 600 miles, northward from the Massif Central through Sancerre towards Orleans, where it turns westward and continues to the Atlantic Ocean. What other growing region offers such a wide range of stellar options – sparkling, rosé, dry whites, dessert wine, light and rich reds, you name it! We’ll taste Muscadet, dry, sweet and sparkling Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre and Reuilly, Cabernet Franc from Bourgueil and Chinon, Sancerre Rouge (Pinot Noir) - everything notable that we can get our hands on. Take a trip through the prettiest growing region in France, the land of chateaux!
