WineRelease.com's September 15, 2021 Monthly Newsletter.

This month we had 72 winery updates and 58 wineries releasing wine.

Bonjour from Paris. We just completed week two and have been making the most of our time. We took an eclaire baking lesson, went to Disney Paris, visited Versailles and walked over a mile around the gardens. This weekend we plan to travel to Champagne on Saturday, meet friends at the Luxembourg Gardens on Sunday afternoon and will be hosting our second set of dinner guests.



Three liter wine boxes at Monoprix.
Three liters of box wine ranging in price from $3.50 to $5.75 per equivalent 750ml.



Ruinart Champagne display.
Visited the Galeries Lafayette, an upscale French department store, and had my daughter pose in front of the Ruinart Champagne display. Ruinart is the oldest Champagne House in the world.



Mia in Veuve Cliquot chair.
Veuve Clicquot has the most marketing materials of any wine brand I know.



Barefood Merlot in Monoprix.
And the US wine is represented by Barefoot Merlot.



We're open and welcoming any and all recommendations, so please feel free to share your favorite parts of France.



And now, onto the wine releases...
