2022 NYC Wine & Festival : French Bloom is on every table at the BOISSON dinner!
The renowned NYC Wine & Food Festival was back to celebrate its 15th anniversary!
This major culinary event, featuring over 400 international chefs, wine and spirits producers, and the world's most renowned culinary personalities, was held again in the heart of Manhattan.
For the first time within the festival, a category of alcohol-free drinks and mixology was created, in line with the growing demand for non-alcoholic sophisticated sips.
The American alcohol-free retailer, Boisson was chosen as official partner and organized one of the most talked-about dinners of the festival, with chef Andrew Zimmern and the artist Alon Shay. During this occasion, Boisson curated a fully alcohol-free beverage pairing, with expertly crafted dishes from chef Andrew Zimmern, including our non-alcoholic sparkling wine: French Bloom Le Rosé.
