With 15 estates with exemplary terroirs, Gérard Bertrand is the ambassador of fine wines of Languedoc-Roussillon around the world. He has defended the wealth of his land with passion and enthusiasm for over 30 years. Producing great wines requires patience, maturity and rigor, but the same vision must be shared with one’s team. It also takes a healthy dose of intuition to bring out the soul of the terroir. And understanding the different steps – harvest, bottling, vinification and aging – and not being afraid of “the thousand and one details” that lead to Excellence.

So wherever you are you can always add a touch of French flair to your hot summer days!

French Press Coffee, anyone?


A French Coffee Press, also known as a cafetière, cafetière à piston, caffettiera a stantuffo, press pot, coffee press, or coffee plunger, is a coffee brewing device. Did you know that two French inventors (Mayer and Delforge) patented in 1852 a forerunner of the French press? A patent was filed by a Frenchman, Marcel-Pierre Paquet dit Jolbert, officially published on August 5, 1924.

We especially like the elegant, durable, and authentic Bodum Chambord French Press Coffee 

  • Made with a Recyclable SAN Beaker that is shatterproof and provides a cleaner and greener cup of French Press Coffee.
  • The frame and lid, made of stainless steel, undergo several chrome plating processes to obtain a durable shiny surface that will last for many years of intense use.
  • The black CHAMBORD Polypropylene handle comes in a matte finish that not only gives a comfortable grip while serving but adds to the classic quality of the design.
  • This classic design makes coffee in just 4 minute

How to brew French Press Coffee the Bodum Way.

Here is a selection of  French Coffee Press

Monoi de Tahiti is an Endless Summer


Nothing says Summer like the sweet fragrant Monoi Oil of Tahiti also known simply as “Fleur de Tahiti”. Monoi de Tahiti is a precious and exotic cosmetic oil manufactured in Polynesia following traditional methods. The oil is created by soaking and macerating 10 Tiare flowers from French Polynesia in one liter of refined coconut oil for a minimum of 10 days.

The authentic Monoi de Tahiti Oil carries an “Appellation of Origin” guarantee and is produced under very controlled manufacturing methods to ensure the highest quality oil. Thanks to its moisturizing proprieties, MONOI makes skin softer and naturally protects it from the harmful effects of the sun and the sea salt. It’s also the miracle product Polynesian women use to care for their legendary hair. 100% Monoi oil from Tahiti is available online.

 

Yves Rocher USA  has a  Bestselling fragrant line of Monoi de Tahiti  in luscious Monoi oil,  dry glitter oil, fragrance spray with the new Eau de Toilette called Wave of Summer or Vague d’ été in French as well as a complete line of body creams and scrubs, body wash, and hair care.

Monoi de Tahiti is a sensual fragrant oil and for me, it truly is Summer in a bottle all year long! Feel the caress of the sun on your skin, the enveloping warmth of summer, the sensation of hot sand mixed with the freshness of water beneath your feet.

So many summer memories revived by this sun-drenched fragrance that will have you dive into an endless summer.
