Dear Wine Lovers,

You are cordially invited to our second "Inexpensive French Wine Tasting for the Holidays". This is your chance to come and enjoy 6 or 7 French wines, carefully selected by our guide for the afternoon, Arnaud de Lajarte, an expert and marketing professional from the French Beverage industry. Each wine, bought from Auchan located below the restaurant, will have a target price point of less than Protected content . This is your chance to find wine for the holidays and then go buy your supply of the one(s) you like.

We start the afternoon at 3 pm at the restaurant Protected content . We will be greeted with Cava, Spanish sparkling wine made in the traditional method like French champagne but at a much lower price point. We will mix and get to know each other for 15 to 20 minutes and then get down to the real work. Arnaud will talk about buying tasty, inexpensive wine at Auchan. We will taste 5 or 6 wines pre selected from the downstairs Auchan. And enjoy special appetizers from Myaso and Ryba.

If you are still hungry after the appetizers you are free (and encouraged) to order additional food from the restaurant which will be on your own tab and payable directly to restaurant. Please tip for good service!

Through out the tasting you will be able to track the wines as you taste them with a tasting sheet which we will collect and use as feedback.

And perhaps you will want help in Auchan? For all who are interested we will leave the restaurant at 18:00 and go down to the Auchan wine section. Arnaud will point out the wines we just tasted. And he will offer help and advice for you as you look at others on the shelves.

Last year this was a huge success. We found 6 wines which were all under Protected content a bottle. 5 of them were exceptional and a great value.

Please, join us!

Best Regards

Fred and Arnaud
