In 2016, extreme weather events like hail, frost and drought wreaked havoc on vintners across France, decimating harvests in places like Chablis, Morgon, Fleurie, Pic-Saint-Loup and Menetou-Salon. Some producers lost entire vineyards’ worth of fruit due to hailstorms. In response, Racines and Chambers Street Wines in NYC have joined Vendanges Solidaires, a French initiative to raise money to aid the hardest hit. From October 24 through November 5, Racines NY will donate $2 for every bottle of French wine purchased. Chambers Street Wines will donate $1 for every French bottle sold on October 29 and 30. Supporters may donate directly as well.
