Description

What is Languedoc Roussillon famous for? Beautiful French-Roman villages, caving, epic driving roads, the Pyrenees… but for its wines too. The area is France’s largest wine producing region.

During the 1970’s the Languedoc Roussillon was guilty of overproducing cheap jug wine but this time is over. For wine enthusiasts on a budget, Languedoc-Roussillon is now known as a best value wine region. It has slowly been recovering its status as a quality producer by reducing yields.

What kind of wines will you find in Languedoc ? Fantastic value-driven sparkling wines made in the same style as Champagne, Unoaked zesty white wines, Fruity and juicy red wines, tasty rosés and, last but not least, Rich full-bodied red wines with Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre

Join us for another evening of discoveries. 6 wines will be tasted along with a homemade dinner.
