The nine wines shipped quarterly have been carefully and enthusiastically selected from hundreds we have sampled to give you drinkable, delicious wines. Each shipment will include at least five different wines, and one or more of the wines each quarter will be what the Languedociens call a "connoisseur" wine, a wine of complex character to savor with a meal. This may be a varietal wine made from the juice of only one regional grape, or it may be from a specific soil type giving special characteristics to the wine or the winemaker may have had a special process for making the wine. Over the course of the year our selections will represent the incredible variety of grapes, soils and terrain that exist in the Languedoc-Roussillon. Each quarter our shipment will be selected to reflect seasonal preferences.
Everything we choose will be delicious and interesting to discover and in almost all cases these are wines you and your friends have never heard of. Since we know that you will fall in love with these wines, we have ordered a limited additional supply of each wine, which you can order by individual bottle as long as our additional supply lasts.
The name of the Cathar Collection comes from a group of forward thinking, egalitarian minded men and women who lived in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the 12th-14th centuries and perished after a valiant struggle at the hand of Pope Innocent III and his allies.
Shipments will be scheduled for March, June, September, and December of each year unless you advise us otherwise.
