A great article from Steve Prati, for USA TODAY NETWORK – TENNESSEE, about Pezenas city, South of France and Languedoc Wines.
Proud to be on the list of wineries to go 😉
On a recent trip to France, I fell in love with what might be called the Cinderella of French wine regions–Languedoc. While other areas such as Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, and Rhone get a lot of attention and glory, Languedoc has done the heavy lifting—producing fully a third of France’s wine….
….Pezenas is not big and bawdy like Marseille, or high-tech like Toulouse. The town is more country mouse than city mouse and it has the comfortable lived-in feel of the people who call it home….

…A sort of wine renaissance came over Languedoc. Today it is a treasure chest of regional varietals produced in authentic style by winemakers with an abiding passion for their land.
