Take online wine classes with Vinolust! Learn all about wine from the comfort of home.
Vive la France! This historic powerhouse of world winemaking continues to be the benchmark for so many winemakers AND wine drinkers. Home to hundreds of iconic wines, one can explore this country for years on end, tasting a different wine every day, and still barely tap into the treasure trove of incredible bottles to be tasted. So this class, I’ve decided to focus on a few of my MANY favorite wines of France to help expand our understanding – or just continue to appreciate – the variety of wonderful wines this country has to offer.
Each week in this three part series we taste three different wines from different regions of France, with background on the grapes, the region and the people responsible for the beautiful beverages in our glass!
