Great Independence Day Wines

Lift a Glass for Lady Liberty at our free wine tasting this Saturday, July 2nd featuring 4 perfect Independence Day wines! In case you didn’t know, the French played a key role in helping us gain our independence, and we are paying homage to them this Saturday with a free wine tasting featuring a super lineup of value-priced wines from France. There are so many extreme values coming out of France these days, and these are the perfect “adult beverages” to serve on the 4th of July. Why? The combination of quality and value — that’s why! Stop by, taste, learn, stock up, and save big on all of the tasting wines!

1. 2015 Domaine de Menard Cotes de Gascogne Blanc (Southwestern France) – The white wines of Gascogne are easily some of the best values on the planet. The one from Domaine de Menard is a fine example! A blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc fermented in stainless steel, it is fresh, lively, and a great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.

2. 2015 Laurent Gauthier Beaujolais-Villages Rose (Beaujolais, France) – Small grower and producer Laurent Gauthier grew up in Beaujolais and his dry rose is one of our favorites every year. Composed entirely of Gamay, it is light, brisk, and perfumed with lovely notes of white cherry, cranberry, citrus and white flowers.

3. 2014 Domaine de Fenouillet Vin de Pays de Vaucluse (Southern Rhone, France) – This new wine has quickly become a staff favorite. A blend of Merlot and Marsellan (a Grenache/Cabernet Sauvignon hybrid), it is ridiculously authentic and delicious. Loaded with spicy cherry fruit and slight herbal edge, it will take you to Provence with just one sip!

4. 2014 Domaine de Massiac “Sentinelle de Massiac” (Languedoc, France) – Consistently one of the top French red wine values in the store, the new vintage of the Sentinelle de Massiac is super! A blend of 2/3 Syrah and 1/3 Carignan fermented in stainless steel, it is full bodied and rich with notes of dark berries, spices, herbs and mineral. Soft and supple on the palate, it makes for a great red to serve with anything off the grill.
