Famille Helfrich, the independents and on-trade arm of Les Grands Chais de France, are offering all independent wine merchants, that are still open, a free case of Crémant with every mixed palette of wines they order.
GCF is one of the leading suppliers of Crémant and the only producer to supply Crémant from all eight French producing regions; Burgundy, Bordeaux, Alsace, Loire, Jura, Limoux, Savoie and Die.
According to Joseph Helfrich at the helm of family-owned and run, Les Grands Chais de France, the company will be continuing with its production within current constraints to protect the health of its staff, customers and partners for as long as possible. As a major player in the wine industry, Helfrich also said it was their social and economic responsibility to maintain their production capabilities, after being asked by the French Ministry to ensure no shelf is left empty.
Independents and GCF entrepreneurial on-trade wholesalers that are still managing to operate wishing to take up this offer should simply go to the Famille Helfrich You Tube Channel Famille Helfrich Wines & Spirits and watch GCF winemakers and Crémant experts, Nicolas Haffelin and Pierre Jean Sauvion to name but two, taste through Crémants from all eight French production regions. Then, select the ones they want for their free case, all of which are exclusively available to the independents and on-trade, and Famille Helfrich will add it to their next order or send it to someone of their choice who needs a bit of extra sparkle in their lives right now such as a family member, a neighbour or a colleague.

“We wanted to do something for all the Indies who do such a great job, to support them at this challenging time and to try and lift their spirits as well,” says Chris Davies, Sales Director for Famille Helfrich. “We’re really grateful to them for staying open to ensure their customers can still easily access and buy great wine. Everyone knows that a bottle of fizz can lift anyone’s spirits and whilst we know it won’t solve anything, we simply hope our Crémants will help the Indies to do just that!
