Love That Languedoc

I just got back from a long two weeks of tastings around Western Europe. We went as far north as Normandy (Cherbourg) and we went all the way down to Logrono in the Rioja region of Spain. We drove past a lot of vineyards on our tour, and I have to make a confession. I love the Languedoc.

I cannot deny the beauty and character of every wine country we drove through. I can’t deny that there are talented winemakers everywhere we traveled.

But I have to admit that I love my region, the Languedoc-Roussillon, more than any other place I’ve visited.

Every beautiful place we visited sort of made me miss the Languedoc a little more.

What makes us different? Obviously, there’s a great terroir. But the wonderful thing about terroir is that EVERY wine country has its own unique terroir. Ours isn’t necessarily BETTER than the others. It’s something else that draws me to the Languedoc.

I think it’s the opportunity. The Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the largest wine producing regions in the world. We’re responsible for something like one third of France’s wine. And a decade ago, we were producing 10% of the GLOBAL wine supply just in this one area. But despite this vast size and importance, we are one of the least recognized areas.

Well I’m going to change that. Check out where I’ll be running around the Languedoc-Roussillon with my camera. I’m going to be interviewing everybody I can find. We’re going to show the Internet and the New World that the Languedoc is a vibrant place full of opportunity and energy. If you’re reading this, I’m very grateful that you’ve been following my vineyard adventures. But NOW, I’m hoping you’ll want to follow my Languedoc adventures as we rediscover every wonderful part of the Languedoc-Roussillon.
