FREE Sud de Franch Launch Party on Monday, June 3rd at 7:30pm (NYC) by Philip S. Kampe

Why not start the summer a little early by attending a FREE Sud de France launch party at the famous Penthouse at The PARK Restaurant, 118 10th Avenue between 17th and 18th street.

The Park has been one of my favorite outdoor type restaurants for many years. The location is only a block from the HIGHLINE, which should make your arrival to th event even more fun.

Sud de France offices are in New York at 10 East 53rd street. The offices are also a showroom and event space for products from the Sud de France. I have attended numerous wine events, lectures, seminars and musical events at this space and am always amazed how efficient and creative the staff, under the the direction of  Marianne Fabre-Lanvin, operates,   

Sud de France is an extremely large region in the south of France. It is home to both Languedoc and Roussillon, an agricultural paradise. The wines, the food and the hard-working people are amazing.

The wines of Sud de France feature roses, whites, reds and sparkling wines. Summer means rose wines from the south of France to me. It is the time of year, where I, often visit the wine shop and purchase an assorted case of rose wines from France to use when I entertain.

To start the summer season off, the Sud de France crew is sponsoring this event that includes music from the New York Brass Band. A selection of wines from the Sud de France region will be offered for sale along with food specialties from the region that will be prepared by celebrity chefs. The food will pair perfectly with suggested Sud de France wines.

This is the first of many Sud de France Festivals in the New York area (Brooklyn included). Other events include:
The AMERICANO  June 2nd  6pm
The SMILE  June 9th  6:30pm and 9pm
CALLIOPE  June 11th  7pm
DONNA   June 16th   11:30am and 1:30pm
The PINES  June 23rd  6:30pm

The above events are ticketed events.
