December’s French Winophiles theme is French Fizz. Any French wine that bubbles in our glass is eligible. We’ve got a group of writers and bloggers lending meal suggestions, travel plans, history, you-name-it. It’s all about bubbles from France and you are invited to be a part of it.
This week our group of writers has been putting finishing touches on the topics. There’s a variety of regions included: Bugey Cerdon, Champagne, Limoux and Alsace. Some writers aren’t featuring a particular region, but a particular wine. Others are pairing French Fizz with a menu (and don’t those dishes sound fabulous?). Some of us are going into cultivating methods, others serving (sabering!) methods. The topics vary, which is intentional this month and we toast to the cooler season. For many of us it is also time of celebration and reflection.
This is the last French Winophiles session of the year. Please join us to enjoy an hour to discuss and learn about sparkling wines from France. Welcome to the following writers and their topics:

Join us on Saturday December 17th at 10:00 am central time on twitter. We’ll be there under the hashtag #Winophiles. There we will chat about all things related to French Fizz…from all over the country, made from any method, made with any grape.
We’ve been all over France this year, immersing into wine regions one at at time. For more on what I’ve published at L’occasion, as well as links to all the other writers please visit my Winophiles category.
Next year we’ll be rolling out something new, a scope of creative and curious proportions. Be ready to travel and explore with The French Winophiles in fresh ways with fresh perspectives.
