Unhand that Wine!

What is wine if not French! Proverbial home ground to the elixir, from the famed Bordeaux to Burgundy and Champagne, the French cultivate vineyards that speak of the Bishops and Dutch cultivators of the 12th century. La raison; French wine Monsieur... reason enough! The annual extravaganza of The Food and Wine Fair (August 19 – 27) is earmarked as the time for empty cellars – remnants of the previous year’s liquid bounty – to make way for fresh yield and to celebrate the gastronomic fruitage that mother earth has bestowed upon the village of Saint-Pourçain, Auvergne – a principal winegrowing region. Wine tasting accompanied by local folk music & animated dancing highlight festivities that culminate in fireworks and free ball. Even a procession of bejeweled carts, and a cycle race to look forward to. So did we just hear you packing?!?
