For our second event of the year, I invited the French Winophiles crew to track down some 'godforsaken grapes' and create a pairing. You can read my invitation: You're Invited: Indigenous and Godforsaken French Grapes.
Last month, the #WinePW discussed godforsaken grapes from anywhere in the world. We had wines from Macedonia, Georgia (the country, not the state), California, Austria, Turkey, Italy, and Southwest France. You can see that line-up in my post for that event, An Unlikely Match: A Thai Favorite + A Qvevri-Aged Wine from the Republic of Georgia.
This month, the #Winophiles are looking specifically as grapes in that category from France only! Here's how the crew will be answering the French Indigenous Grapes and #GodforsakenGrapes challenge...
