Packing for the Perfect Picnic

As we’re all in the quest for fresh air and socially distanced activities, it is no surprise we’re all turning into picnic lovers on the weekends.  Many know that picnic originated in France and the French word “pique-nique” is where the word “picnic” actually comes from. Let’s pack our picnic basket and add some French touch! You can instantly turn a casual gathering into an ultimate luxurious alfresco dining experience by pairing wines to your picnic snacks. Grab your favourite patterned tablecloth and fill the basket, then you’re good to go!
