Don't turn away, these will blow your mind! Vins Doux Naturels (VDN): naturally sweet wine. In the 13th century, the process of mutage (adding spirit to the wine must to kill the yeast, stop fermentation and preserve sweetness) was invented in the Languedoc, hundreds of years before port wines were made. These wines are luscious with cheeses and desserts. Expand your palate into a new, delectable realm.
