Wine, food & health

When it is time to sit down at the table with friends, food and wine join together in celebration. They answer each other and enhance each other, yet are considered as one: they express the same countryside and participate in enriching the Languedoc culture. Century after century, season after season… In the summer, at lunchtimes, for example, what better than accompanying fish, seafood and shellfish with a white AOC wine from the coast? In the autumn, game is invited onto the menu with its woodland smells of leaves and mushrooms, accompanied by a red AOC wine from the hinterland with its typical gunflint aroma. In the depths of winter, hotpots and stews clamour for a Cathare red AOC wine, full of power and warmth. And finally, what more invigorating and refreshing than to compose a spring salad in the company of a Languedoc Rosé.

Hence, in this section, we let you discover or rediscover the general rules for combining food and wine, putting such principles into practice in the kitchen with recipes and advice to accompany alike, the Languedoc AOC wines. A few words on the health-wine relationship will conclude these gourmet pages.
