Le Grand Courtage offers sparkling wine with a French cachet and American appeal. Tawnya Falkner took the leap and gave up her career as a designer/developer in San Francisco to move to Burgundy, France to follow her passion relating to travel, food & making wine.
Long ago, when a boat left on a long voyage, it was referred to as a “courtage” and it is from this that the name originates. These wines are about the negotiations as we journey through life. Intended to mean “the Great Courtship”, the approach was to combine hundreds of years of grape growing experience with progressive blending techniques. Le Grand Courtâge is a “courtship” between French and American wine culture, the old and new world, grapes from different terroirs; and it is the “courtship” of life and love.
Our vision was to create an affordable luxury perfect for all occasions… a timeless, yet contemporary packaging which catches the eye of consumers, and a delicate wine which delights the palate. We positioned our product so its visual identity conveys the perception of luxury at exceptional value.
Courtâge’s unique profile, with its dry, crisp, yet light and fruit forward character, creates for a “balanced”, cuisine and cocktail-friendly wine which is enormously versatile. In short, we aim to change the luxury, special occasion mentality of ‘champagne’ by offering an elegant yet approachable, affordable, versatile French bubbly.
Le Grand Courtage offers a French Elegance and an American Appeal.
