An Array of Dishes Paired with Languedoc Wines #LanguedocDay


When fellow #Winophile Jill of L'Occasion reminded The French Winophiles that May 25th was Languedoc Day and because sponsors have been so generous with previous Languedoc events*, I wanted to give them a shout-out and pull together a round-up of previous Languedoc pairings to share. But I was offline - chaperoning an 8th grade camping trip on the 25th - so this is tardy. Je suis vraiment désolé.

Languedoc Wines
Once a source only for inexpensive, bulk wine, Languedoc is showing its ability to make fantastic terroir wines at affordable prices. As France's largest wine region, the Languedoc is home to an array of climates and wine styles.

Typically considered red wine country, there are small amounts of rosés - particularly from Cinsaut, Syrah and Grenache - and an increasing number of whites made including Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and local varieties such as Picpoul and Clairette. It has certainly won my heart with its breadth and depth of choices.

  1. I wanted to do something like this also but Friday I was too busy packing for our camping trip over the weekend! Nice roundup of recipes and wine!
