Released in 1927, Wings made history as the first film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Set during World War I, this silent epic follows two American fighter pilots, who go from small-town rivals (vying over the affections of the same woman) to brothers in arms. Equally complex and thrilling, Wings Cabernet Franc 2020 is ready to impress your guests.

One of the stars of France’s Bordeaux region, Cabernet Franc also thrives in sunny California. The winemaking team sourced the grapes from California’s Contra Costa County, a hot region directly east of the San Francisco Bay. The county’s winemaking history dates back to before Prohibition, and it’s home to several plots of gnarled, 100+ year-old vines that yield wines with seriously intense flavors. As reports, “the wines produced here are held in high regard by critics and consumers.”

We certainly think you’ll hold Wings Cabernet Franc in high regard. Full bodied and smooth, it offers ripe dark berry, expressive violet and intriguing spice notes. It’ll really shine alongside a hearty meal—pair it with juicy steaks, roasted poultry dishes, earthy vegetarian meals and more.

Classic film fans will definitely want to get their hands on this delectable Wings tribute. Hurry for your share.
