Our Magnum Policy…….

magnumpolicy1) Weekdays just fine.

2) No Corkage in Shebnation.

3) When given a choice, always choose 1.5 Liters or more.

4) Proper handling of magnums is to cradle them in your arms like a baby. Or two babies.


(Notes: No garbage allowed in Laval vineyards. Morgon is actually the Rhône so, granite. Also no garbage allowed at Lapierre. No sugar in Laval bottles. No swimming in the paradis, even though that shimmering, fractal, ruby lake may call out to you. Please practice some impulse control.)
