This is the story of a three-century-long beautiful adventure. France and America have had a long and tumultuous history, starting as early as the 17th Century when they discussed the merits of European vines and native American vines.
French emigrants came with their knowledge of grape growing and winemaking, settled in various parts of America and started the wine industry there. In 1976, the Judgement of Paris put American wines in the spotlight and French and American producers started joint ventures (Opus One, Dominus) and luxury houses bought vineyards in California (Chanel, Kering) or launched their own brands (Chandon).
Join us for an exploration of these American wines with a French flavor!
