Wines from Languedoc
Why is Languedoc Roussillon famous? For it’s beautiful French-Roman villages, caves, scenic roads, the Pyrenees AND for its wines! This area is France’s largest wine producing region.
During the 1970’s Languedoc Roussillon overproduced cheap jug wine, but era 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, Carignan and Mourvèdre grapes.
