New and Classic Wines from Burgundy!
Come join Alliance Francaise for our Burgundy wine tasting with Avant Partir at The Wine Store’s Bin
75 Tasting Room in Alpharetta. Avant Partir will be pouring 8 new and classic Burgundy wines for
you to taste. This event is in English, but Alliance Francaise will be standing by offering up French
wine words to make you sound like a French sommelier! Learn how to say “Ca sent bon le vin!” and
find out what it actually means. This is an informal social event, and all are welcome. So whether you
are a wine novice or connaisseur…. come join us! Taste some new wines, have a bite of fromage (of
course)…and learn some French!
About Avant Partir and The Wine Store:
Avant Partir imports estate grown true to the type wines that reflect their sense of place and
craftmanship. Their Burgundy producers speak for themselves. Instead of trying to find the new
latest and greatest, Avant Partir prefers to work with wine makers with pedigree. Avant Partir is
located in Duluth. The Wine Store, at 8455 Holcomb Bridge Road in Alpharetta, is North Fulton’s best
source of fine wine OTP thanks to Keith, its long time knowledgeable and experienced manager.
There will be extra bottles of the 8 Burgundies available for purchase. You can also find a selection
of Avant Partir’s other wines at The Wine Store. Cheese will be provided by Cheeses & Mary, a local
provider of artisanal small batch cheeses.
About Alliance Française:
Our Alliance Française French teacher, Françoise Perraton Harper, is from Burgundy herself! She is
the granddaughter of the Perraton wine-producing family located in Macon, in the south of
Burgundy. “La Coupe Perraton” is a famous yearly award for the best Macon white wine.
Françoise enjoys sharing the rich culture of wine discovery and tasting inherited from her family.
