Meet Mr. Wine Tasting: Olivier Magny visits Rosemary Beach all the way from the City of Lights

"It's about giving people a more refreshing approach to wine, without the blah and stuffiness," he said.

Next time you visit a wine tasting — whether it's in Paris or along 30A, Magny hopes his readers and students learn to have an open mind to wine.

"Drink it and relax," he said. "Give each wine a chance."

And if you want to have what he's having, Magny's latest favorite is White Sancerre from France .

"You can drink it for breakfast, lunch and dinner."


The Hidden Lantern and Wild Olives are hosting a joint event during Magny's visit to Rosemary Beach. The wine expert will be signing books at The Hidden Lantern, while Wild Olives will feature French wines and French-themed gourmet tapas plate from 4 to 6 p.m. For more information, visit or For more information about Magny, visit
