Vis pour voyager, et voyager pour vivre! Translation: Live to travel, and travel to live – with a getaway to Southern France! Sunglasses and suntans are reminiscent of Biscaye Baie Sauvignon Blanc from the Gascony region of France. Known for warm, sunshine-filled days and rural off-the-grid living (do they have wifi?), Gascony produces some of the world’s finest white wine. Blends of citrus and herb meet wild white flowers and fresh, juicy peaches straight from the rolling hills of Southern France. Fun fact: the vineyard was named after the Bay of Biscay that is close to Gascony!
Argentina: beautiful, daring, intense…not only the country, but the wine as well. While known for fútbol, tango, and exquisite architecture, the southern most part of South America is also a wine fanatic’s paradise. Hailing from the surprisingly laid-back city of Mendoza, Altocedro Malbec blends the finest wine growing techniques with bustling city life. One sip while on the floating deck of The Foundry in Killington will bring you to a sun-filled cosmopolitan café in Mendoza. Pair with protein-packed poultry such as Chicken Marsala for even more immersive experience.
