Too bad, I have other plans, but maybe next time...?
April 22, in Beaune, the ♥ of Bourgogne, Féminalise, the 4th wine tasting for women only is about to take place. How fun!
" Women have become wine-lovers, 45% of them enjoy drinking wine. In France, 78% of women buy wine in supermarkets, in Germany, 70% and in the United States 80%. Doesn’t one say that women have the art and the talent to taste wine? "... so the website states. How true!
In 2009 2350 samples of French wine were tested. 33% of the wines get Gold-, Silver-, or Bronze medals. A sticker on the bottle, which will help other women to find a good wine when shopping at their local stores. I will start looking for those medals, when back in the Alsace area again...
Sad only, it is not so easy to find women around you that are interested in wine?
