Join the Languedoc Adventure. For the entire month of May, over 40 Bay Area restaurants and retailers will be hosting tastings, special dinners, and events, and pouring the unique wines of AOC Languedoc in the South of France. The Languedoc is France’s most dynamic wine region, where adventurous producers are redefining ancient traditions and producing some of the country’s most exciting wines. The region is blessed with some of the best conditions in France for winemaking. An auspicious blend of soil, wind, sun, and the Mediterranean Sea produces naturally healthy vineyards and results in a huge range of wines that are accessible and affordable discoveries for the U.S. wine lover. Join the Adventure for this unique opportunity to taste wines from France’s wine frontier.
The adventure continues on Monday May 14th at RN74, where the special chef’s tasting menu will feature all-Languedoc wine pairings. Here’s the menu: beef carpaccio, beets, rhubarb, pink peppercorn, and arugula with Domaine de Fontsainte Rosé Gris de Gris, Corbières, 2011; Liberty Farm duck confit, barley, spring garlic, duck sausage, and barrel-aged tamari with Domaine d’Aupilhac ‘Montpeyroux’ Coteaux du Languedoc; and a selection of cheeses by Soyoung Scanlan, apricot, feuille de brik, and mustard seed with N.V.
