Francais

The FC Collection





French wines are considered to be among the worlds best. The key to the success of French wines is the range of climates and soils in the various wine regions. This range is so great, the French have been able to use the best of each region to produce specific grapes that give the wines of each region their distinctive characteristics. Since our 

FC Collection is made from grape juice and grape concentrates that come from France, you can expect some of the same characteristics that you will enjoy in a French wine.
