The Wine Shop
Are you ready to try something extraordinary?
The wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon are not your typical French fare. As diverse as they are delicious, these wines will surprise your palate and delight your senses. Taste the purest expression of soil, grape and radiant sunshine—rich, luscious, and bright—in every sip.
But first, how did we find these wines? We live in the Languedoc! As your personal, on-site Languedoc-Roussillon somms, with WSET Master’s Certificates in the wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon, we taste over 1,000 wines each year before making our wine club selections, we seek out wines that exhibit finesse and complexity, coupled with a boldly creative flair that defies their locale— ‘New World’ wines in an ‘Old World’ region.
Our wines are made “root to sip” by men and women who plant their own grape vines, care for the plants, harvest the grapes and make the wines. No corporate wines here! These artisans create with their heads and their hearts, inspired by tradition but also unbound by it. To learn more, check out our appellations page and the great freedom provided by the appellation Pays d’Oc IGP.
Our many organic selections are presented below with the European Union organic leaf designation.Or ganic wines in the EU can use small amounts of organic sulphites, which helps make the wines remain stable over time.

White glove delivery is available in the Seattle downtown corridor by calling 206-323-4757 and speaking with Ioana.
