Frenchington

Red Blend
Description

Frenchie: Proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset’s French Bulldog, Frenchie, represents the very essence of style, charisma and personality. With his stout stature and ability to steal everyone’s heart, he is definitely royalty around the winery. Although he may not go down in history as one of the greatest military leaders of all time, Frenchie will definitely go down in history as the greatest four-legged winemaker. 

George Washington: Washington was the first President of the United States, the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. His alliance with the French army and navy during the Revolutionary War helped secure America’s independence and we honor that longstanding relationship with our Frenchington Red Wine. 

Boisset donates $1 from the sale of each bottle to Guide Dogs for the Blind. For more information on this charity please visit www.guidedogs.com. During the month of April, "Frenchie month," Boisset donates $2 for every bottle sold!
