Our love of all things French at Jones Winery stems from winemaker Mandy Jones’ 14 years in Bordeaux and the influence continues through to the dishes served at Jones Café. It is only natural to celebrate the spectacular Tour de France with a culinary tribute to the great race!During the tour Jones Café will feature a special dish representative of the region the riders are in at the time. This year’s tour actually starts in Leeds with the first 3 stages in England before hitting the more familiar north of France and onto the French Alps before the traditional finish in Paris. Pick your favourite and book in for lunch or even come each week and try all four dishes. Maybe you will be inspired to ride your bike in.
