Bumpy Ride Red Blend
Celebrate the great French vs. US wine debate curled up for a movie night viewing of Bottle Shock with a glass of our Bumpy Ride French Red Blend. The movie will transport you back to the 1970s when Napa Valley wines first dared to compete with those of France’s best vineyards.
Our Bumpy Ride is made in a 19th-century Bordeaux style because Syrah was used in this blend which is no longer allowed in the modern Bordeaux style. The Syrah gives the wine a beautiful deeper tone.
Is French wine still the best in the world? Decide for yourself as you shake things up with this French Red Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah from one of France’s oldest wine regions.

Stories behind the wine
Bumpy Ride comes from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, where grapevines are said to have existed before humans even arrived in the area. An important French winemaking region for several centuries now, it’s estimated that one out of every ten bottles of wine in the world were produced in the area during the 20th century. The rich Mediterranean climate and local passion for winemaking excellence make it easy to see why the wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon region have earned a reputation as some of the best in the world.
