Today's French Wines

Today’s French Wines

Nouveau Chic or Still Stuffy?

Explore today’s French Wines from four different regions of France while pondering the changes in packaging, flavor profiles and France’s new approach to the American market. The program will be presented by Ryta Mirisciotti.  Decide for yourself if you prefer France’s tried and true wine experience or their nouveau approach to gaining market share in the US!

We will taste wines from Loire, Corbieres, Bordeaux and Burgundy. We’ll explore the well-known regions as well as some lesser known areas (who, by the by, are the ones experimenting with more chic labeling, American palate profiles, and the like.)  

Our tasting will be held on October 8, 2014 at the Evergreen Community Park, 3430 Evergreen Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15237 at 7:00 pm.  The cost for the event is $15 for members and $20 for guests.  Make your reservations now.  Please respond to:
