No longer does France have a monopoly on quality wine – that ship sailed with the “Judgement of Paris” over four decades ago. But in my humble opinion, French wine will never lose its place as the gold standard and sentimental home of the world’s best wines, from great value bottles to luxury cult selections.

Next week, France celebrates 228 years since the storming of the Bastille, a turning point in the French Revolution. What better way to celebrate than with France’s favorite libation?

You can toast the occasion on Bastille Day itself at Swirlery’s daylong celebration next Friday with French wines and food.

Saturday, indulge in another French favorite – cheese! – at Audubon Park Garden District’s 6th annual wine and cheese pairing, hosted by East End Market’s La Femme du Fromage.

À votre santé!
