A special Holiday visit

Tis the season of spreading love, cheer and tremendous wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon!  We were fortunate enough to meet with Decanted: The Wannabe Wine Snobs Podcast and The Puget Sound Business Journal to share our story!

Here is what they had to say: 

Decanted: The Wannabe Wine Snobs

"The Princess and The Bear is a new wine club and online shop in Seattle that showcases curated, boutique wines from the LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON region in France. Carol Bailey (The Princess) and Steve Medwell (The Bear) are Seattlites who moved to the Languedoc and fell in love with the small, premium producers. They are the ONLY importer of these wines into the US. Prices? Many bottles are sub $20.
Got to love wonderful people bringing what they adore to the masses."

Sparking scores for some sparkling wines!


Fact, not fiction, and not fake news: The Languedoc, not the Champagne region, was the birthplace of sparkling wine. At the Abbaye de St. Hilaire near the Languedoc town of Limoux, a warm spring caused a second fermentation in the bottle to occur. This was noticed by the monks, of course. And thus began the delight of sparkling wine drinkers all over the world.  There are hundreds of sparkling wine producers using the méthode champenoise. Our favorite producer is...J. Laurens! 

Delight your family this holiday season with our amazingly priced Decanter World Competition 2017 Bronze medal winner sparkling rosé, Le Rose No. 7 and the very special, Decanter World Competition 2017 Silver medal and Guide Hachette starred wine Clos des Demoiselles (Field of The Bridesmaids) both produced by our favorite sparkling wine producer, J. Laurens.
