  • The Languedoc
    production covers approximately 160 000 hectares or 400 000 acres Together Languedoc and Roussillon produce more than one third of all the wine made in France and more than twice as much wine as all of Australia There are around 50 000 growers working with 400 co operatives this equates to around 70 of the regions production and just under 3 000 private wineries We are talking a lot of wine more than 3 billion bottles a year Its ideal Mediterranean climate and diverse landscape produces a vast range of wines to suit every taste and budget Lots of people don t know the wine they re drinking comes from the Languedoc Roussillon Chalk this confusion up to an unnecessarily complicated labelling system The wines of the Languedoc Roussillon are called different things depending on where they are from the grapes used and the yields of those grapes At the top in terms of quality are the appellation wines and less than 25 of the wine produced falls within the AOC classification There are 27 named Appellation d Origine Controlées AOC and Appellation d Origine Vin De Qualité Supérieure AOVDQS which include familiar names like Corbière 1 Minervois 2 Cabardes 3 Fitou 4 Faugères 5 Blanquette de Limoux 6 St Chinian 7 and Maury 8 Unfortunately aside from the Côteaux du Languedoc 9 and Côtes du Roussillon 10 the names of Languedoc and Roussillon often don t even appear on the label The next tier is the I ndication Geographique Protegée Vin de Pays wines IGP VDP D Oc are typically single grape variety wines and usually have the grape written on the front label After that there is a long list of regional Vin de Pays wines These are wines declassified because of either excessive yields cheaper wines or

  • About us
    or we saw the locals buy it and assumed it would be to our taste We were always disappointed when we returned home and found UK supermarkets stocking mainly mass produced mass exported New World wines It seemed ludicrous to us that France our nearest European neighbour and a producer of some really great wines was largely overlooked by our main supermarket chains Realising that we were probably not the only people who felt this way we decided to do something about it As the years passed we became more interested in the wines and more adventurous in our approach to buying them visiting local caves looking at different grape varieties and trying many wines along the way As a result of that interest Peter has recently passed the Intermediate Certificate in Wines and Spirits through WSET and is planning to take the Advanced Certificate early next year Having bought a small village house in Languedoc Roussillon on the border of the Corbieres and Minervois regions it made perfect sense to specialise in wines from this area We are constantly visiting local growers and producers in an effort to bring you the best quality wines available The picture above shows

  • Food and Wine
    food even red wine with fish and the world will continue to revolve There are however some very simple guidelines for getting the most out of particular food and wine combinations There are two main factors to consider when matching food and wine The body or weight of the wine which corresponds closely with alcoholic strength and the level of tannins in red wine and the sweetness in white wine If you match a wine s body to the power of the strongest ingredient in the food you cannot go far wrong If you are going to be eating delicately flavoured food such as white fish or chicken you would want a lighter bodied wine But be careful if either the fish or chicken is going to be barbequed or covered in a rich spicy sauce sauces are almost invariably more powerful than the food they are accompanying then a fuller bodied wine with ample tannin would be more appropriate Very acid foods such as citrus fruits tomatoes and vinegar can make a slightly acid wine from a particularly cool climate or year taste less sour Most if not all wine will taste quite bitter if served with sweet food
