FRV100 gamay in OC?

digkv Mar 7, 2010 08:00 PM

Hey guys,

so I've been looking for this sparkling wine FRV100 for a while. It's supposedly a relatively cheap wine but I have not found it anywhere and I really want to try it. Does anyone know where I can find it?

    I've never seen it, but the pun in the name makes me cringe.

        Google says:

        "The phonetic pronunciation of FRV 100 in English is EFF ARE VEE ONE HUNDRED.

        In French, it is EFF ERR VAY SON – in other words EFFERVESCENT!"

          Not knowing French, I can understand why I didn't get it. Thanks!

            Exactly. F-R-V-cent in French.

                Maybe a tiny bit, but I've been speaking French since before my first birthday, so it jumped out at me.

                  Anyway, I'm glad I asked.
