I'm very fond of this wine game. I even wrote a review.
As I said in my conclusion:
While the game itself is not that deep, and the decisions you need to make tend to fall into the reasonably obvious, the game's rich theme amply makes up for it.
The game is well researched and the wines and meals on the menus are excellent representative examples of what you would expect to find when one travels in France. It also doesn't outlast its welcome - a complete game only takes about an hour or so.
Some of life's best moments are when you're with friends around the dinner table; this game really gets people talking about good food and wine. I found Les Vins de France quite engaging for that reason, and look forward to playing it again.
