♦ LANCERS ♦
ROSÉ SPARKLING WINE
Lancers was launched in 1944, after Henry Behar visited Europe with the objective
of finding a rosé wine that could be particularly appealing to the American palate. His
search ended in Portugal, more precisely in the Palmela region, in the famous
cellars of José Maria da Fonseca. The wine was christened “Lancers” in homage to one of Mr. Behar’s favourite paintings: “Las Lanzas” by Velázquez.
