While in the City of Lights, they find each other, encounter a romantic rendezvous or two, and embrace all the spontaneity that comes with living in an exciting new city. Always looking for a good time, the women find themselves in an extraordinarily rich moment in their lives where the possibilities for true love, unrelenting passion, and forging life-long friendships are endless.”

Make it a french-themed girls-night in soirée with French sparkling wines that pair with any menu take-out through simple buttered popcorn and make delicious sparkling wine cocktails.

The Wines

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 Rosé, award-winning French wines with appealing, modern character and an elegant appearance.

*Sparkling varieties available in 750ml & 187ml bottles

The Menu

Keep it simple and chic. Slice up a couple of croissants or a fresh baguette and serve with European butter and/or set out a few accouterments such as crackers, olives, a few french kinds of cheese such as brie, Roquefort, Gruyere, and Nutella for a sweet treat.
