The Wine Shop
The wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon are sexy, sultry, sensuous and sensational. Need we say more? Due to the abundant sunshine the grapes ripen with beautiful fruit characteristics and the wines feel luscious and rich in your mouth. Our wines are made by the most passionate winemakers and have a finesse and complexity that will keep you coming back for more. Many of the winemakers are contrarian and make wines in their own passionate way regardless of tradition or requirements to be an AOC wine. To learn more, check out our appellations page.
