It is no secret that France is considered the home of great wines and has served as the inspiration for many grape growers and winemakers around the world, including here in our very own French corner. Most wine grape varieties also originate from France and as we traditionally celebrate our French heritage in July, we thought to share the French origin of varieties used in the La Motte wine portfolio.
