Wine tasting & food pairing: The Languedoc-Roussillon: Winedown Wednesday

Event Details


With its long growing season, huge soil range, varying microclimates in the Massif foothills, and the cooling influence of the Mistral & Tramontane, the Languedoc-Roussillon has the perfect growing conditions for a multitude of varietals.

The 2015 vintage is considered to be very promising, especially at the top end, as the abundance of hot weather provided plentiful ripeness.

Jancis Robinson writes “How many times do we have to make the point that the Languedoc offers some of the finest value in the wine world before this exciting region gets the credit it deserves?” Indeed! And this evening, our wine selections will help to prove the point!

Please join us for a sumptuous sipping of Opimian wines from the LanguedocRoussillon, well-paired with a variety of French hors d’oeuvres. The wines from this event are aligned with C251, open for ordering from July 7 until August 11, 2017.
