Teetotalers in France

Jump to last reply

I know a trip to France without imbibing in wine sounds like a sacrilege to many, but neither DH nor I are drinkers. Add in the fact that we're planning on visiting Burgundy and I'm sure several of you just rolled your eyes!

DH will drink tea, water or soda, and I prefer water or soda. Should we stick to water with dinner in Paris rather than face the disparaging looks from the waiter if we order sodas? When visiting the Napa Valley we were pleased to find rather good olive oil at California wineries and we enjoyed touring the vineyards. Should we plan on visiting any of the wineries in Burgundy?
