Women’s Cocktail Collective & Female Founded Wine & Spirits Brands. As a founding member of the Women’s Cocktail Collective, we are aligned with the mission of diversifying the back bar with female-owned wine and spirits brands. Le Grand Courtâge CEO/Proprietor Tawnya Falkner grew up in a 3-street town, and that upbringing awoke a desire to see the world. The more she traveled, the more she realized that food and wine are about human connection and bringing people together to share life’s simple pleasures. Fueled by a passion and a belief, Tawnya gave up her career, took the leap, and moved to France. Her vision to create an affordable everyday luxury resulted in Le Grand Courtâge and Très Chic, award-winning French wines with appealing, modern character and an elegant appearance.
