A MODERN-DAY TALE
This is not going to be a story about a dashing prince on a white horse who rides in to save the damsel in distress. It is the story of French Pool Toy, a tale of success weaving the classic values of life with the concerns of the modern world.
ONCE UPON A TIME
It all started on a balmy summer night in 2016. Maurice, a Franco-American sailor, was having trouble sleeping on board his boat. It was not the waves or strong winds that were the cause, it was the events of the previous day. While enjoying a sail with friends and toasting the sunset with a bottle of Rose, one was knocked over and crashed to the deck. With shards of glass everywhere and one cutting the foot of Maurice, the fun was over and the evening ended.
It was in his bunk that night that he thought about how heavy, bulky and dangerous glass bottles were on a boat. Ideas started to come into his head. Why not put a good quality wine in a high-grade, unbreakable bottle? he thought. It would be perfect not only for boats but beaches, pools, concerts and anywhere else glass would be a problem.
FRENCH POOL TOY WAS BORN
Maurice envisioned a wine built around his fond memories of the Mediterranean, azure waters, flamingos, and delicious roses.
With his ideas fresh in his head and no fairy godmother to help them come to fruition, Maurice enlisted the help of two young French friends. Over the next few months the three toiled in uncharted waters researching, designing and tasting. In the end, the first vintage of Pool Toy was produced.
Pool Toy’s go-anywhere packaging is 100% RECYCLABLE state of the art PET with oxygen barrier to protect wine and extend shelf life. Its carbon footprint and global warming potential are far less than glass. “Enjoy The Inside, Recycle The Outside”
WINE IS BEAUTIFUL
This rosé is an inviting pale summer pink made from classic varietals from the south of France. Its fresh red berry with a hint of citrus flavors make it the perfect refresher anytime, anywhere.
Yes! This is true French Rose. It’s crisp and dry, with hints of strawberries and vivid minerality. The package is fun, and funny, and you can drop the bottle on Waterford’s concrete floor and it bounces off. The palate is brisk and fresh, easygoing, and lively. Yeah, maybe the label and story are a bit of a joke but hey, the wine is serious—and seriously good.
