Tour de France Tasting 5/27/16

No bicycles involved here just a liquid tour of the main wine regions in France.  We will taste the grape varietals grown in these regions so if you didn’t know Gamay is the red varietal in Beaujolais you can now taste it as well as the four other principal regions of France, Loire, Burgundy, Rhone and Bordeaux.  It should be fun.  No bike shorts please!
