France ranks at the top globally, where the predominant choice is pink wine. It has rightfully earned a global reputation for producing some of the best quality rosés in the world. These pink-hued wines have a refreshingly crisp flavor, which pair perfectly with the region’s sunny climate and coastal cuisine. Rosé wines taste just like summer – light and fruity with prominent notes of tart citrus, flowers, and melon. They range in body and complexity, but often finish with a crunchy green flavor, similar to rhubarb or celery. Some fans enjoy pink, primarily as a summer refresher, but we think that these quality rosé wines are enjoyable all year long.
St Tropez has been on my dream travel list for years and I couldn’t wait to see it all. This charming coastal town is located in the southeastern part of France, in the French Riviera region. It is famous for its stunning beaches, luxurious lifestyle, and vibrant nightlife, making it a popular destination for both tourists and celebrities. St Tropez was even MORE than I expected it to be. We fell in love…and discovered that St Tropez was the perfect place to return to over and over again.
Arriving into France on Bastille Day or “le Quatorze Juillet” – was perfect timing for us to celebrate with the locals in Cannes. Each year on July 1, the glamorous city on the French Rivera transforms into a vibrant hub of celebration as it commemorates “le fête nationale” (National Day). This day, one of the most important national holidays in France, marks the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, which led to the French Revolution and the establishment of the modern French nation.
