One of CSL's favourite wine regions was highlighted at the French Fling Festival at Willow Park Wines and Spirits on Friday March 9 2012.

With nearly 100 wines poured, the large crowd was eager to sample everything from Cotes du Rhone to champagne, Anselme Chateauneuf du pape, Antech blanquette and viognier.

To reinforce the French theme, Janice Beaton served a selection of cheeses from throughout France, moules in a white wine sauce, mini quiches, perigord duck pate, and charcuterie, added to the atmosphere of everything Francais.

Vive la France!!
