WINE THAT IS KISSED BY THE SUN OF SOUTHERN FRANCE
Fifty shades of pink was the order of the day as winemakers, who had flown over especially for the event, uncorked their latest vintages. All of the wines were fresh, vibrant and alive. Perfect to accompany the lavish buffet of fresh oysters, steamed shrimp and lump crab with assorted roasted vegetables or the region and a groaning sideboard of sumptuous prime aged beef sliders, tuna tartare and assorted small bites representative of the region. There was no end to the bounty of beautiful wine, food and beautiful people to herald the impending days of summer and their perfect liquid accompaniment, the Wines of Provence.
