Your delicious glass of French wine is poured, now what? The French are very particular about their glass-clinking traditions. Here are a few phrases to know before your first sip:
Santé – Health (as in, “To your health.” The French say santé when “cheers” would be used in English).
À la vôtre – To yours (as in your health).
Tchin-tchin – This is the noise of glasses clinking and is often said before one takes their first sip.
Alors, santé, tout le monde! (So, cheers everyone!)
