“We hope to inspire more people to discover this exiting wine region in the south of France. A lot of wine writing tends to be focussed on the most famous wines and wine regions. Languedoc-Roussillon is not – yet – so famous but makes fabulous wines. It is one of the few wine regions where it is still affordable to buy vineyard land, so it attracts many young and ambitious winemakers. And make wines that are affordable to the consumers. We hope our book will make more people discover these fantastic wines, the stunningly beautiful landscape and the local gastronomy. And come to visit and travel in the region. Thank you!”
That was our short speech to say thank you when we received the OIV award for our latest book, “Languedoc-Roussillon, the wines from the south of France”.
