American Friends of Cité des Civilisations du Vin

The French Cheese Board hosted the American Friends of Cité des Civilisations du Vin on April 7, 2015 for the launch of a unique fund-raising event that may put Thomas Jefferson’s name on the auditorium of an international wine center. Why Thomas Jefferson ? Well, first of all there are over 180 countries (and every State in the United States) that produce wine, and Thomas Jefferson was the first American to serve wine at a State Function and later grew vines and produced wine on his property in Monticello, Virginia. Also, there is no one center for wine in the world. So for the newly formed American Friends of the Cité des civilisations du vin (AFCCV) the goal for the American Friends to raise funds name the auditorium at the wine center the Thomas Jefferson Auditorium ( for more information and like their Facebook Page) at an international wine center in Bordeaux. It seems fitting to honor Mr. Jefferson, who, among many other important contributions to our Country, brought wine to America.
