New Wines of France Blog Is Revved Up and Ready to Go

Blogging, Vlogging and a Sweepstakes to Boot!

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - US consumers' enthusiasm for quality wine is at an all-time high, and Wines of France intends to match that excitement with a new blog and a once-in-a-lifetime sweepstakes, all with a little help from friend Sheri Sauter Morano, Master of Wine and Spokesperson for Wines of France. With Sheri's new blog on the completely revamped www.wines-france.us website, French wine lovers will have the opportunity to interact with their very own personal wine guru. In addition, visitors to the site can enter for a chance to win the "Ultimate French Wine Lover's Sweepstakes."

Starting this month, Sheri will post her "Wine Experiences," educational pieces "Grape Decoder" on grape varietals and "Wine 101" featuring French wine regions; "Wine Talk" where she answers the "Question of the Week" and interviews various wine personalities. Sheri will also feature a "Wine of the Week," selected from her brand new list of "Top French Wine Picks" and her "My Favorites" which include Sheri's personal wine and food pairings. "I am so excited to be able to share my love of French wine with others who are just as passionate. And, for those who are just starting to take interest and are maybe a bit intimidated, I hope this blog will help them feel more comfortable with French wine," says Sauter Morano.

As if Sheri's new blog wasn't reason enough to log on to the website, it is also the only place where oenophiles can enter the "Ultimate French Wine Lover's Sweepstakes!" Now, anyone who has ever dreamed of being a vigneron and making their own wine will have the chance to win a trip for two during the harvest season for six days each in Bordeaux and Burgundy, capping off the adventure with a fabulous stop-over in Paris. The rest of us can live vicariously through the winner's postings on Sheri's blog, which will offer a day-by-day account of the enviable activities.

To find out more about Sheri's new wine blog and all the details for the "Ultimate French Wine Lover's Sweepstakes," log on to www.wines-france.us as of June 16th. Hurry! Sweepstakes ends July 13th. The winner will be announced July 18th on Sheri's blog.
