If you’re looking for a Holiday gift idea, stocking stuffer, or just want to give yourself something special this time of year, the Wine Guild has a great offer from our friends at La Belle France. This is a niche travel newsletter for the francophiles out there. They’ve been reviewing the French dining, hotel, and country retreat scene for 25 years, and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate says,

“Remarkably accurate… advice and tips are to be taken seriously. If you visit France at least once a year, a good investment is a subscription to La Belle France.”

Whether you are planning your first trip to Paris or perhaps this is your 30th trip to France and what you really want is to get off the beaten path, subscribers to the newsletter La Belle France have found it to be required reading. It is the longest running publication solely dedicated to traveling France. Due to its unique subscriber-supported business model, the publication has never had advertising or sponsorships of any kind, allowing its original reviews of hotels and restaurants to be entirely anonymous, unbiased, and honest.

Exclusive to the Wine Guild is a one-time only 50% off the subscription price for La Belle France. A one-year subscription to the newsletter and full-access to hundreds of restaurant and hotel reviews online typically costs $119. Wine Guild members get this for only $59.50. You will receive 12 issues of La Belle France and complete password-protected access to unlimited content online at

Pick up a subscription form at the Wine Guild or email my friend Jeremy Goldstein at and see why Travel + Leisure magazine calls La Belle France, “The pick of the travel newsletters – a bright insider publication providing travelers with indispensable information.”
