With Pascaline Lepeltier, Wine Director at Rouge Tomate
Discover little-known yet exquisite wines from the southwest of France imported by Baron Francois in this first tasting of the spring season led by Pascaline Lepeltier, Wine Director at Rouge Tomate.

Gain an appreciation for these delicious wines, served with French cheeses by Président and Société, and charcuterie from the region, specially selected by D’Artagnan.
