tour de france de wine

We all know Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Champagne, but as cyclists are pedaling all over the country in July why not explore some French wine regions you might not know?


Ugh, they make just fantastic Pinot Blanc here which is incredibly refreshing on hot summer days. It’s very light with just enough yellow apple. And this Hugel one is only $14.99!!! Allons!


Sommeliers love the funky whites here, but I dig the very light Trousseau reds served with a little chill. Try this Michel Gahier, $33.99.


Sauvignon Blanc is queen here, and you can usually find a Pascal Jolivet, in your local wine shop, restaurant, or here for $18.99.
