The Languedoc Awaits!

Princess and the bear partners with British wine touring company vin en vacances

 So many people have told us that they want to come see the beautiful Languedoc region. Now you can easily come and explore the wines, meet some of the passionate wine makers of today’s Languedoc renaissance, taste wonderful regional specialties and spectacular Mediterranean seafood and learn a little about the amazing history of the region: the Greeks, the Romans, the troubadours, and the Cathars.

A couple of years ago we discovered a wonderful British owned wine touring company, Vin en Vacances, based in the Languedoc.  They have offered to create three different wine-food-history tours centered around the themes of our wine clubs: Amphora, Cathar and Mediterranean. We are so excited to be able to share our love of this region, and through these wine holidays you will see for yourself why we call this the SuperNatural South of France!

Here’s a note from Wendy Gedney, the owner of Vin en Vacances: "We are honored to have been chosen as The Princess and The Bear's travel and vineyard tour partner so that their US wine lovers can explore the region in person and meet Carol and Steve in the Languedoc.  We have drawn up three exciting Languedoc wine holidays that will bring you to this magical part of the Mediterranean to meet the winemakers and discover the secrets of the SuperNatural South of France."

A Special For You and Your Valentine

The Languedoc is filled with choices for Valentine's Day! Below are our picks.  The La Dame, an organic wine from the award winning Dutch winemaker, Lidewij Van Wilgen and by one of the best sparkling wine producers in France, J. Laurens.  Our sparkling brut, just awarded 91 points by Wine Enthusiast! 

2016 La Dame 

This luscious, ORGANIC wine has a silky mouth feel, smooth tannins and a nice, long aftertaste of spiced fruit. This wine is wonderful on its own by the glass, but with food all the rich flavors are enhanced. Roasted veal, fine pork and even grilled beef will pair beautifully with this wine.

91 points from Wine Spectator

2016 Le Clos Des Demoiselles 

Delicate and fine bubbles, hints of buttery toasted biscuit, white flowers and a long finish. Not only by-the-glass-wine but try it with white fish, poultry and white meats like veal or fine pork. Perfect!

91 Points from Wine Enthusiast
