Wine Tasting: Cynthia Hurley French Wines

Take an exciting tour through some of France’s finest wine-making regions with Roy, from Cynthia Hurley French Wines!
I can’t describe them any better than they, themselves, do: “For more than twenty-five years we have been importing exceptional wines from nearly every major wine region in France. Our selections represent the efforts of independent growers and producers who use minimal to no intervention to create wines that are terroir driven. We import just those wines we want to put in our own cellar. We believe one of life’s greatest pleasures is heading down to your cellar and picking a different bottle each evening.”
