French wines, which draw from a wide variety of unique, diverse and modern vineyards, will be presented during two Grand Wine Tastings at this year’s Best of France in New York on September 26 and 27, 2015 at AXACENTER (787 7th Avenue at 51st Street, New York, NY; September 26, 2015 – 7.00pm-10.00pm; September 27, 2015 – 3pm-6pm).
Wines with Style is an overarching communications campaign promoting all French wine regions overseas and in the United States. And as part of its Wines with Style campaign, French wines will showcase some of the best wines coming from its various producing regions: Alsace, Beaujolais, Bordeaux, Bourgogne, Champagne, Corsica, Jura, Languedoc-Roussillon, Loire Valley, Provence, Rhone Valley, Savoie and France’s Southwest.
French wines speak loudly of the land on which they grow and are also a natural reflection of those who make them – guests will be able to taste that for themselves as they discover more than 100 lively, joyful and mouth-watering wines, including dry, sweet and sparkling. To help guide them through their tasting experience and learning about the nuances of various wines, some of New York’s most prestigious sommeliers will be offering their expertise at the event, including Andre Compeyre from Loews Hotel, Raj Vaidya from Daniel, Carrie Lyn Strong from Aureole, and many more. The Grand Wine Tastings will be complemented by a cheese, charcuterie and dessert buffet. Educational seminars will also be offered for deeper dives into the wonders of key French wine regions.
