The twelve wines shipped each quarter to members of the Mediterranean Collection will be carefully and enthusiastically selected from hundreds of wines we will taste each year. Each shipment will include at least six different wines, and four 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 a special process for making the wine. In addition, every great winemaker has her or his special way each year of making the land, the grape and the weather harmonize and become a wonderful wine. The Mediterranean Collection brings you many of our favorite winemaker's best wines.
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.
Once a year the founders and other Princess and Bear team members will organize and host an Invitation Only wine tasting somewhere interesting in the Languedoc-Roussillon and help members of the Mediterranean Collection have a first hand experience of the SuperNatural South of France. Winemakers, chefs, sommeliers, and local characters will attend this evening exclusiely for Mediterranean Club members. We wil help you organize a stay in the Languedoc-Roussillon region by suggesting historical sites, sporting activities, bed and breakfast accommodations, wine domaines and restaurants in the region.
Each club shipment will also include recipes from chefs living in the Languedoc – Roussillon featuring seasonal produce to complement the curated selection.
Each member of this adventure will also receive a link to a YouTube video from the founders or a sommelier in the region who will describe each wine, ideal serving conditions and information about the domaines from which your wines are sourced.
In addition, a winemaker, a sommelier and the founders of the company will be offered throughout the year via Zoom conference so club members can ask questions about the wines and understand more about the grapes, winemaking techniques and why wine club members love the wines they love.
All the wines we choose for this Collection will be delicious and interesting to discover and in almost all cases these are wines that 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 extra supply lasts.
The name for the Mediterranean Collection comes from the beautiful Mediterranean Sea which surrounds the Languedoc-Roussillon region and has given livliness and vitality to the region for millennia. Every seafaring culture has arrived on these shores and has stayed to benefit from the beautiful landscape and soil that has sustained so many cultures and civilizations.
Shipments will be scheduled for September, December, March and June of each year unless you advise us otherwise.
