Vueve du Vernay Brut (Voo-ve Da VerNay)
The excellent quality of the original cuvee and careful monitoring of the secondary fermentation result in a delightfully fresh and delicate sparkling wine with a charming touch of fruitiness. Although the cuvee is typically created from wines of a single vintage, Vernay is not vintage dated in order to allow the winemaker the flexibility of including wines from other vintages for balance and consistency. Veuve du Vernay is typically Blanc de Blanc, a white wine made exclusively from white grapes, and it is a Brut (dry) sparkling wine, but it is not austere - rather it suggests the characteristics of the fine varieties from which it is made. Many discriminating consumers of champagne have embraced Veuve du Vernay as their favorite French sparkling wine.

French Look Sauvignon Blanc
The Sarrail vineyard is situated at the foothills of the medieval town of Carcassonne (South of France) and is the largest family owned estate in the area. The warmth of the Mediterranean climate along with the cool breezes of the Atlantic provide excellent growing conditions laying the base for their award winning wines. This Sauvignon Blanc displays fresh apple and peach aromas. This wine's fresh flavors of apple and citrus are balanced by a crisp acidity.
French Look Cabernet Rose
A delicate blush pink color introduces this fresh, lively wine. On your palate, light creaminess surrenders to a refreshing crisp finish of strawberries and melon.
Barton & Guestier Pinot Noir
It is a tradition in France to meet at the local bistro to relax, socialize, drink wine and dine in a casual friendly setting. The grapes for Bistro Pinot Noir are grown in the foothills near Aleria on the east coast of the island Corsica (Isle of Capri) framed between the mountains and the sea. The rather cool temperatures help the grapes to develop rich fruit-focused wines. Intense aromas of bright cherry and vanilla on the nose; a good structure on palate, this is a well-balanced wine with a lingering finish.
Chateau de la Roulerie Coteaux du Layon
Harvested from the Loire Valley of France, the Roulerie style is made from Chenin Blanc grapes. With notes of honey and beeswax on the nose, together with a lighter, floral lift. Flavors of light citrus fruit on the palate add to an overall feel which is fresh and forward.
