A Trader Joe’s French Wine Tasting

January 25, 2017

The last few years, I’ve been spending a good deal of time in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, where I own a year-round vacation rental. I’ve recently gotten in the habit of stopping by the Trader Joe’s in Portland, Maine, on the way up and back, as (among other great products) they have a pretty amazing value-for-dollar French wine offering.
