This year’s theme is La Savoie - the heart of the French Alps, a beautiful and culturally rich area of France. Just to tempt you, here are the details of the festivities:
The sit-down meal for 175 people will be served and you will be seated according to your reservations at tables of 2 to 10 people in order to respect the Covid-19 safety protocols of the French Embassy and the City of Washington, D.C.
You should arrive around 7 pm and will be offered a glass of champagne and served a tasting of dishes of the Savoie region and much more. So yes, Un-Wine and Taste New Peaks!
Meanwhile you will have a chance to glance around the items in the silent auction and bid on those you want to take home.
For your entertainment, we will have a Live Band until 10 pm.
