Vin De France explores the French Touch with artists from the French arts scene

True to its inherent bent for Liberty, Quality and Creativity, Vin De France is strengthening its ties with the art world and focusing on freedom of creation. The nationwide designation is launching a collab with nine burgeoning illustrators from the French arts scene on Instagram and Facebook. We interview Mathilde Bel, Franckie Alarcon and Popy Matigot, the first three artists to offer a bold interpretation of the VDF world through their unique, 100% French Touch illustrations.
