Hello fellow Paris-Americanos,
You already know what the "King of Beers" is... but what you may ask is the "Roi des Vins"?
The safest route to this discovery is to ask the experts.
The American group has organized a wine tasting with a National French Wine Distributor, Scandivine. They will take us through a journey of French sensations. Trying to convince the "American Skeptic" to consume less Budweiser and more Vin Rouge, Blanc ou meme Rose.
They will also serve French Ham, Cheese and Charcuterie.
They will teach us about the wines, the regions and how to actually drink in an artistic and civilized manner...
Not sure if this task will be more challenging for the American Group...... or for Scandavine... Regardless, it is sure to be a fun, social, and insightful evening.
Scandavine will organize our tasting at a lovely French Bistro in 17eme Paris:
La Terrasse des Ternes
68 avenue des Ternes 75017 Paris
For those of you wishing to eat a full meal, the restaurant will be happy to seat you.
For the others, feel free to drink more wines, ask questions or even purchase the bottles you like.
The price of this tasting is €20. The restaurant will not accept reservations and pre-payments, so it will be first come first serve.
