Beautiful wine abounds, but what about beautiful wine supporting beauty in the community? We were introduced to Fleurs de Prairie Rosé, which is exactly that!
When we were offered the opportunity to taste and learn about Fleurs de Prairie Rosé, we leapt at the chance! There is a lot to like about this wine: enticing aromas, lovely flavors, a gorgeous bottle; all coming together to form a memorable whole. The producer, Les Grands Chais de France, part of the Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits group. It is located in Provence, and the limestone terroir really comes through. The minerality is in balance with the acid to produce a refreshing mouth feel that provides a great baseline for the plum, currant and citrus notes. This is a rosé equally at home beside the pool on a summer day or paired with a gracious charcuterie plate beside a roaring fireplace.
The name “Fleurs de Prairie” is French for “wildflowers,” which references the amazing fields of wildflowers throughout Provence. Keeping with the theme of local beauty, the winery is celebrating beauty in everyone’s neighborhood through local grants. Honoring women who have bootstrapped their “side hustle” into a going concern, they are offering Seed Grants of $2,500 to inspiring women looking to grow their passion. These Seed Grants can be used however the recipient sees fit, to help grow their brand.
Exemplifying the spirit of creativity and beauty that is the goal of this campaign are three Ambassadors. Each has made a contribution to their community that has resonated with the market and grown into a thriving business. Does this sound like you? Are you dedicated to creating beauty in your community? Apply for a Seed Grant to help grow your brand! More information and an application form can be found here.
Seed Grant or not, this is one wonderful rosé, and we think that our neighborhood looks more beautiful already!
