The Best French  Wine Values

Join us on our search for the Best French Wine Values. The Muscadet’s of the Loire Valley, the Rieslings, Gewurztraminer’s and Pinot Gris’s of the Alsace region and the vast treasure trove known as the Languedoc-Rousssillon. This vast region covering nearly 750,000 acres is France’s Largest Region in both acres and wine produced. This region sits along the sunny Mediterranean benefiting from a great climate and very fertile soils which actually date back over 2500 years when the Roman Empire dominated much of Europe.

In the 1970’s a number of enterprising vintners took advantage of inexpensive lands prices to plant international varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon , Merlot and Syrah to capture the growing market for affordable wines.

The downside of all these developments created the Wine Lake that the European Union had to purchase and ended up distilling it into industrial alcohol. While these wines were given the lowest quality rank by the French Government Vins de Pays. In 2009   this designation was replaced by “IGP” or “Indication Geographique Protegee” which means Protected Geographical Region. Today there are also stricter production limits designed to limit over production.

We define Best Wine Values as those wines retailing for under $20.00, many of our picks are under $15.00.
