France

paris-street-market3.jpg

The vine may have a longer history in the eastern Mediterranean, but no country in the modern world is more closely associated with wine than France. Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy; these French regions have become synonymous with the styles of wine to which they are home. And those three are only the most famous in a country where nearly every region produces its own highly individual wine varietals or styles. At Marquis we are apologetically Francophilic, and we are happy to offer you many French wines not available anywhere else in B.C.
