Introducing Mon Frère Wines from California

(May 2019) – Leading U.S. wine & spirits importer Palm Bay International is pleased to present an exciting new California project – Mon Frère Winery. French for ‘my brother’, Mon Frère is a celebration of our connections to each other, to those special people with whom we choose to share life’s triumphs and tribulations.

Mon Frere Family

Developed and vinified by an exceptional team led by Tom Hinde, chief winemaker for the celebrated Au Contraire Wines, Mon Frère Winery champions the very best in quality California sourcing and winemaking. The range includes three expressions: a fresh Chardonnay with moderate, well-integrated oak, a Pinot Noir that delivers ripe, rich fruit flavors, and a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses concentrated, ripe fruit and firm structure while remaining smooth and approachable.  Featuring our familiar friends, the elephant and the mouse first seen on Au Contraire labels, the Mon Frère packaging playfully celebrates friendship in its many shapes and sizes through hand-drawn custom illustrations and lighthearted copy.     

Mon Frère Chardonnay ($15.99), Pinot Noir ($16.99) and Cabernet Sauvignon ($16.99) are currently rolling out nationwide.
