May 29 is #LanguedocDay

Languedoc Day

Want to share your love of the Languedoc or looking to discover this wine region in the south of France? Join the Amateur Gastronomer and wine fans on Friday, May 29th for #LanguedocDay.

Why do we here at AG love the Languedoc?

It’s a beautiful place for growing grapes.
The region gets 320 days of sunshine on average. That means picture perfect growing conditions and grapes that can reach their ideal ripeness.

There’s a wine for every taste.
Red, white, rosé, sweet and sparkling, you’ll find it in the Languedoc. It’s the best of all worlds — there are Burgundy varietals like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and Rhône varietals like Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.

With so many wines to discover.
The crisp Picpoul de Pinet is perfect for summer and pairs well with seafood and shellfish. Or if you’re in a celebratory mood, Crémant de Limoux makes an excellent alternative to Champagne.

And at great values.
Wines from the Languedoc are extremely wallet friendly. You’ll find many delicious wines for under $20 a bottle.

To join the conversation, pick up a bottle of wine from the Languedoc and share what you’re sipping with posts and pictures on Social Media using #LanguedocDay.
