Bastille Day French Wine Tasting - This July 14th

For those of you who know Jack, owner of 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits, you know he slightly prefers the wines of France to that of every other place in the world. If you have ever asked him for a recommendation, he has probably led you to the French section in the store.

Bastille Day commemorates the storming of The Bastille, a Parisian prison, during the reign of Louis XVI and the locking in of the French Revolution. So what better way to celebrate this day than to have our biggest Francophile pour some of his affordable favorites from his favorite wine region?

Come taste with Jack on one of his favorite days of the year! This is a free tasting in our downtown Minneapolis store. It will be well worth your time with one of the most knowledgeable persons in the state about French wine, you don't want to miss it!
