Michelle Williams of the RockinRed Blog, one of the best wine blogs out there, has been a longtime friend of this site and vice-versa. All of us who read her blog were thrilled to hear when she was picked as one of the American wine bloggers invited to a special wine tour of France. This article is the first in her series reporting on her wonderful trip. Everything looks so tasty! A blog really is a community, and it’s wonderful that Michelle was able to represent us, her fans, and the American online wine community so well in France. Can’t wait for the next installments!

I can speak for all six of us when I say we felt like royalty. Not only was the week highly educational but it was filled with amazing wine, food, and hospitality.
