About Faire la Fête
Faire la Fête, which is French for "to party with friends," was first introduced in the U.S. in 2015 and today is distributed across major metro markets by Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits. Faire la Fête is France’s answer to making champagne affordable again by offering consumers the same traditional quality of $50 Champagnes at less than half the price. Faire la Fête is produced by First Growth in Limoux France, the birthplace of champagne in 1531. Sustainably hand-harvested, bottle aged, and 70% less sugar than tank-fermented Prosecco, Faire la Fête is convincing American consumers, who love champagne but couldn’t afford it for daily celebration, that they now can.
