As soon as you smelled the bouquet, you immediately knew it was from Provence. Glad to be in the south of France for a day or two and enjoy sunshine’s favorite wine...rose!

At Norman’s for their 15th Anniversary for the restaurant. 6 James Beard Award Winning Chefs, 3 Master Sommoliers, 1 Master of Wine and 7 courses.
