We’ve always been big on books here at ARGAUX. Back in college, we both majored in creative writing, and always had a major stack on rotation.
Nowadays, we still have that desire to connect with stories (via a bottle of wine): stories of the earth, the vintner’s family, the region’s’ history, the culinary traditions. So pop open your favorite bottle and take a crack at our reading list for April!
The blog Manger has the most dreamy photography, and gorgeous tales of French countryside life. Her latest recipe for Hainan chicken is the last thing you should cook before spring officially arrives.

The Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes
As young female entrepreneurs, there is a lot riding on our shoulders. Building a brand and a business is always tricky, and can be very trying and emotional at times. This book reminds us to get out from under the anxiety and take the joyful risks that become crucial for our personal and work lives.
Read with: Le Clos. J’adore ce vin! According to a lunar calendar, plant-based preparations such as nettle and mineral compost such as crushed silica are applied to the vines. Here no chemicals are used. The wines of Clos St Vincent are classic to the south of France. This ancient French vineyard was recognized as an AOC in 1941. This is a classic rosé, a wine that makes you realize how seriously the French take their rosé! Simply beautiful. For a limited time, we are offering three months of rose on the wine shop! Scoop up our favorites while you can.
