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.
  • Bowerbird Bakeshop Macarons.  Earl from Bowerbird Bakeshop is making special French macarons just for Tilman's this weekend.  They...are....divine.
  • "Storm the Bastille" Wine Flight.  Four of our favorite French wines lined up for a perfect tasting.  What could be better?
  • "Vive Le Fromage" Cheese Board.  Three delicious French cheeses served with shallot confit.  Perfect with the Wine Flight!
