The fourth of July festivities may be over, but today we commemorate the end of another monarchy. It’s the day we remember the storming of the Bastille and the start of French Independence. It’s a celebration of French culture and a perfect excuse to take a break from, well everything and indulge in lots, and lots of French wine.
Paying homage to French Chardonnay with our very own Truvée Chardonnay, we’ve created a wine that showcases the beautiful fruit flavors developed in the vineyards, supported by a touch of French oak. There’s no denying the love and appreciation we have for the French and their wine…I mean after all, Truvée in French means “to find.”
And with so many amazing French wines yet to be discovered, this holiday couldn’t be a better time to explore. So try breaking away from the traditional celebratory glass of Champagne and let your palate lead the way. If you’re up for the challenge, get a little adventurous with a glass of Crémant de Bourgogne and for our red wine drinkers, maybe a yummy pour of Cotes du Rhone or Chinon.
If you can’t make it to France for Bastille Day this year, no worries, there are tons of fun parades, festivals, and special events honoring the French national holiday that do not require a passport.
In fact, if you’re in the Bay Area, don your most festive French wear and swing by Belden Place, our mini French Quarter in San Francisco and enjoy a day filled with good libations, delicious foods, live music and more!
So with our glasses raised high...Joyeux Quatorze Juillet!
