Tasting (walk around)     Weekly Event     Wine    

One of these days, France will give Roussillon the recognition it deserves, and elevate it from its current status as an appendage to Languedoc. Once known only for sweet fortified wines made from Muscat and Grenache, this region’s dry reds and whites are very worthy of your attention. The arid, mountainous terrain, with its thin, poor, rocky soils, is planted to vine varieties similar to those of the Southern Rhone, and the wines are usually blends. And the Catalan culture has more ties to Barcelona than to Paris. No famous names to entice you, but trust us – you’ll taste some real stunners tonight! And yes, we’ll include something sweet.
