Chateau des Charmes
Seven generations of our family have been born into our way of life. So we have enjoyed many meals with a bottle or two of good wine. Gen Seven is more than this. Seventh generation sustainability is an ecological concept that urges the current generation to live sustainably and work for the benefit of the seventh generation into the future. Gen Seven celebrates the sharing of good food and wine with friends and family. But we know not everyone is as fortunate as we are. This is why we were excited and proud that Meal Exchange wanted to partner with us. To support their efforts we are donating 50¢ from the sale of every bottle of Generation Seven to Meal Exchange.
