So this weekend we're celebrating, French style.  We've got lots of events and specials, so come by for some vin et fromage....c'est magnifique!

  • Free Wine and Cheese Tasting.  From Friday to Sunday we will have tasting stations set up with beautiful French wines and cheeses.  Come in and try something new...or a favorite.
