Each month the #Winophiles blogging group delves into a particular French wine theme. Sometimes it’s a notable region whose wines we’d like to explore in depth; other times it’s more about a style of wine – rosé, for example – that is made throughout the country, but perhaps with a range of grape varieties. July takes us on an excursion featuring the delights of French rosé.
To read more about the many guises of this pastel pleasure, check out our invitation post.
Our gang of food and wine writers will reveal what they’ve discovered while traveling the Rosé Route, sharing their food and wine pairing ideas, travel tales, and tasting notes. And we’ve got quite a healthy group this month, so there’s lots to learn!
We hope you’ll join us at 11 am ET on Twitter and add your two-cents’ worth. It’s easy to participate: just log in to Twitter at the appointed time and follow #Winophiles. If you decide to chime in, make sure to append #Winophiles to your tweets so we can welcome you.

About the French Winophiles
We’re a group of wine-loving foodies who gather (virtually) on the third Saturday of the month to share wine-pairing ideas, travel stories, and tasting notes on a particular theme. New members are always welcome so, if you’re interested in joining us, we’d love to have you. In August we focus on Grower Champagne with our host, Martin Redmond of Enofylz Wine Blog. Should be a fun (and bubbly) event!
Thanks for hosting Lauren.
