If you're lucky enough to be holidaying in beautiful French Polynesia between 6th of September to the 1st of October this year, you may be tempted to indulge in some world class wines and cheese at the annual Fromage et Vins Festival, which will be in full swing at the Sofitel Tahiti Maeva Beach Resort, the Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort and for the first time Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach and Private Island. The festival is an opportunity for locals and holidaymakers to discover all their favourite – and some new – cheese flavours from France accompanied by a selection of wines by the event’s sommelier Mr David Perron. An extensive buffet of more than 100 cheeses and 110 wines will be served up each evening during the festival, which has been organised in partnership with Air France and Brasserie du Pacifique and includes a special guest appearance by the President of the Cheese Makers of France guild, master cheese maker Mr Philippe Olivier. To end on a sweet note, ‘verrines’ and pastries will be offered to finish and are guaranteed to ravish tastebuds. Priced at a fixed rate: 8 700 xpf/person (beverages not included), dates as follows:
