region reflect a fascinating history, a pioneer spirit and a joyous
elegance. Once called France’s “Wine Lake”, the Languedoc was
known for cheap and cheerful wine. Over the last 25 years, attentive
wine growing and winemaking have improved significantly. The
quality of the wines is wonderful! Fortunately, these wines still
represent a significant value. The Languedoc offers something for
everyone - from crisp sparkling wines, refreshing rosés, and reds that
are like “Côtes du Rhone kicked up a notch”. It’s time for a real wine
