Every July we at The Wine Company pay hommage to Saint Thibault, the patron saint of Charcoal (not to be confused with Saint Alexander, the patron saint of charcoal burners … who knew Weber had such influence?). Being a French saint, we of course enjoy French wine with our feast.

What’s interesting about Saint Thibault’s Day is our special relationship with the Saint himself. You see, Larry Colbeck is the only living soul capable of determining the exact date of the feast. Check out the videos below, the first one showing the history of Saint Thibault, and the second showing the oracle himself determining this year’s feast date.

More coming soon on Saint Thibault’s Day, the second best holiday in July!
