We love wine

We travel the world to bring you small-production wines with amazing stories. Whether you’re selecting a bottle for a special occasion or looking for something to pair with your Wednesday night hotdish, we want to send you home with something you’ll love. Our friendly and approachable staff will help you find a bottle that fits your needs and budget.

On-site Wine Storage

France 44 offers temperature- and humidity-controlled wine storage units for rent on a month-to-month basis. Whether you’re interested in storing just a case or two, or wish to stock up for the years ahead, we’ve got space to suit your needs. Please consult a staff member for availability.

Weekly Tastings

Our weekend tastings bring together everything we love – our neighbors and community, yummy things to sample, and our furry dog friends! We have three tasting bars – one for wine, another for spirits and a third one for beer. We personally select what we sample each weekend and serve our products in real glassware.
