This month, we invite you to attend complimentary tastings of Languedoc AOC Wines at participating Whole Foods Markets in the Los Angeles area and greater Southern California area.
Praised for their food and wallet-friendliness, the AOC wines of Languedoc offer an exceptional selection of quality, value and character, reflecting the elements from which they come. The region is blessed by an auspicious blend of natural factors, such as abundant sunshine, the Mediterranean Sea, mountains, as well as history, culture and a revolutionary spirit.
Whether you're looking for celebratory bubbles, hearty reds, crisp whites or a refreshing rosé, Languedoc AOC wines deliver in spades. For example:
• AOC Limoux, the original home of sparkling wine, offers Champagne-like quality at a fraction of the price.
• AOC Picpoul de Pinet, a white wine whose name means “lip-stinger” because of its zesty acidity, makes a perfect aperitif
• AOC Corbières is home to wines of all colors, including hearty reds made from primarily Carignan grapes that often smell of “garrigue”, the local name for resinous herbs such as rosemary and thyme.
• Languedoc AOCs also produce rosé wines that are delicious year round – especially paired with a salad or charcuterie plate.
Discover these wines and more at your local Whole Foods Market during the month of February.
