The pinnacle of Western Civilization met Shanxi Bei Lu last weekend as Fasia, the first French wine importer and cellar owner in China, threw the very first French wine festival in Shanghai. With on-site wine specialists including a Maitre Sommelier who happens to be one of only 58 recognized in the world, wine enthusiasts enjoyed a well prepared feast of the senses. Fancy!
Guests enjoyed a wide array of French wines, white and red, with instruction and encouragement by the Maitre Sommelier himself. Sponsored by Jean Boireau and Chateau De Pizay, the party included sushi, French bread and cheeses, pastry items and other treats. Neighbor Gourmet Cafe was also there with delicious fresh grilled burgers. Bacchus would be proud.
