We’re always coming up with ways to celebrate France and French wine, but Bastille Day is the real deal. Imagine the 4th of July, but instead of cramming your personal bottle of wine into a cooler jam-packed with beer, your glass plays host to a carousel of local, crushable, delicious wines. This is when Vin de Pays comes out to play — not stuffy or cerebral, these wines are easygoing and a joy to drink, full of flavor and hugely affordable. Party as the French do with one of our favorite lineups: C’est la Vie!

C’est la Vie

Chardonnay-Sauvignon White Blend

Not a blend we see often in the states, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc actually chum up quite nicely. For a crisp and summery white, the Chardonnay lends some weight and body great for food, while Sauvignon Blanc keeps things zippy and compellingly green. Fresh aromas of ripe green apple and white peach, plus citrus and florals precede a palate of fresh, crisp fruit and a refreshing note of lemongrass.

C’est la Vie

Syrah-Grenache Rose

 This salmon-pink beauty is a fun departure from the more chaste Provence-style French rose. Ripe notes of strawberry, mandarin orange, peach skin, and pink guava bounce from the glass, while the juicy palate remains dry with additional white raspberry and pink grapefruit. It’s clean, quaffable, and ready to party.

Pinot Noir-Syrah Red Blend

A red that’s happy to hang in the summertime, this is a true brasserie-style red — juicy with a dry finish, well-made but unpretentious. Black and red fruits sing from each grape in the blend, while the Pinot Noir acid and light Syrah grip keep everything well in balance. Pop a chill on the bottle for the greatest expression of black cherry, macerated strawberry, cinnamon stick, and a little red licorice whip.

Enjoy these wines anytime thru July 14th at any of our Top Ten Locations.
