Le Cfe Curieux serves French Wines and French Food. Last week, they had a small event called Cold Cuts, Cheese and Wine Degustation in partnership with Le Cellier wines.
The event highlighted the food and wine of the French, which in my point of view is quiet different with us Filipinos and is quite refreshing. A variety of cold cuts were served, along with different cheeses that go along of course withthe famous French wines from Le Cellier.
Here are the 3 wines that I got to taste that night, my favorite is the Rose wine.
