Your Daily Glass of Joie De Vivre Has Arrived

Les Dauphins Wines From the Rhone Valley Are Available Nationally in the U.S. for the First Time

RHONE VALLEY, FRANCE--(Marketwired - April 03, 2015) - Les Dauphins wines from France's Rhône Valley are now available nationally in the U.S., where they are putting the joie in joie de vivre. Originally introduced in Europe, Les Dauphins' classic Rhône characteristics appeal to seasoned Rhône drinkers, but also attract newcomers with their vibrancy and elegance. The wines, which can be enjoyed on their own or paired with simple, savory dishes, have arrived just in time to fuel the French bistro trend growing across the U.S. They are perfect to pop open for a home-cooked meal or to bring to a lively gathering of friends.

Les Dauphins wines draw their inspiration from the joie de vivre mood of Paris in the roaring 1920s, a time when the wines of the Dauphiné region in the Rhône Valley became popular due to their deliciously versatile style. Paris in the 1920s was the artistic capital of Europe, attracting artists, musicians and writers from around the world. The life of these artists revolved around Paris bistros, which served simple but savory food and wine that fueled the creative revolution.

Today, some of the best grape growers in the Southern Rhône craft Les Dauphins wines from the traditional varieties Grenache, Syrah and Mourvédre to once again inspire the joy that made 1920s Paris one of the most exciting and creative periods in history. These scrumptious wines have been flying off shelves since being introduced in Europe in 2011, where the combination of their fruity, elegant flavors and beautifully artistic packaging captured the hearts -- and the dinner tables -- of Europeans. Three Côtes du Rhône wines are currently sold in 34 states and the District of Columbia, with more states and wines to come!
