Voulez-vous un verre de vin blanc, rouge ou rosé? (Would you like a glass of white, red or rose wine?)
To make it easier to respond to that question, I asked Thierry Givonne of Wine Tasting in Paris if he would help me make a video with some of the key French words that people may encounter when ordering a glass of wine in Paris.

I met Thierry, who is originally from Burgundy, a couple of weeks ago when I attended one of his test sessions for a wine tasting class that "Wine Tasting in Paris" will start offering in September. "Introduction to French Wines" will include a sampling of wines from five different regions of France: Champagne, the Loire Valley, Burgundy, Bordeaux and Côtes du Rhône.
