Défi | Sonoma County, California

ARGAUX & Amlière Imports have been built on the idea of making good wine, made by good people, easy and accessible for everyone. Défi is a project that developed after years of establishing relationships with winemakers who have the same sense of purpose. Wine should be thoughtfully crafted by people who care about the vineyards, take pride in the process of making wine and create something that is delicious and unique to its home. Our team worked with a few of our trusted winemakers in Sonoma to create Défi, a word that means challenge and a label that gives you a taste of California, made by people who welcome hard work and the challenge of making noteworthy wine. Enjoy!

The Independent Restaurant Coalition (IRC) was formed to save the local restaurants and bars affected by COVID-19 and the subsequent economic fallout. IRC was founded on the simple belief that there is power to affect legislative change if we unite our voice. This national movement is quickly growing and EVERYONE is welcome to join. Together, we represent 500,000 small businesses across this country, playing a key role in the $760 billion restaurant economy. For the 11 million people across the country employed by independent restaurants — and the 5 million workers up and down the food supply and delivery chain who depend on our restaurants — these small businesses cannot fail.

500,000 independent restaurants and 11 million jobs are on the brink of going away forever. Unlike most businesses that can just turn their lights on, restaurants across the country are restricted from reopening their dining rooms, and will have capacity restrictions when they do. In order for restaurants to serve communities again and assist in reigniting the economy, we need Congress to pass the RESTAURANTS Act, establishing the $120B Independent Restaurant Revitalization Fund.

Get to know our winemakers, why we love them, and why it is more important than ever to support them.
