About Wines

 

The French have historically been associated with the finer things in life. French gastronomy, French fashion, French luxury products and fragrances, French wines and the French way of life, have admirers all over the world.

 

In fact, wine is integral to French culture, the country has a long history of wine production and almost every region of France produces a variety of wines. The proportion of land used for viniculture in France is expansive, and the quality of wine produced in France is widely acknowledged to be the best in the world. It's no wonder then the culture of drinking wine gained momentum in the 16th century.

 

Wine also traveled to the new world to countries like Mexico, Argentina, Chile and Brazil via the conquistadors and missionaries. Wine and the cultivation of wine then went on to spread to countries like the USA, Canada, Japan, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and others. that France is the leading producer of wines in the world. 

 

Following the improvement of wine-producing techniques improved during the 17th and 18th centuries, the French wine industry blossomed, and French wines were exported to other European countries like Ireland, England, Germany and many others. French wines were also exported to the New World and bartered for coffee, and other sought-after items.

 

The French wine industry suffered a setback in 1863 when a disease called Phylloxera aphid attacked French vines. The vintners then introduced stronger American vines in affected regions, which helped to alleviate the problem. Soon after the French wine industry was back on its feet and French wine is now thought of as a premium product, which is much admired around the world.

Today, our challenge is to import the best of what France has to offer but also the new world. It is important to share our passion and heritage.
