It is difficult to convey a sense of what it is like to travel in a wine district. It is just as difficult to convey a sense of what you may experience when reading a book. But at least we want to try.

Earlier this year, our tenth book was published, a new book on Languedoc-Roussillon, the wines, the food, grape varieties and much more. It is a guide to one of the many exciting wine districts found in France. It is above all a book that wants to inspire you to discover more and explore new things. The book contains lots of good wine producers, some presented with a short text, some with longer. The book is also illustrated with many pictures from the beautiful landscapes and vineyards down here in the very southern part of France, close to the border with Spain.

The area is both rustic, sometimes harsh but also very beautiful. In the far south, there are the dramatic Pyrenees, which near the border extend all the way down to the sea, covered in vines. Further north there are vast wilderness areas up towards the Massif Central. In fact, it is from here that roquefort cheese comes.

The wines, on the other hand, are not harsh, nor rustic, as they sometimes used to say. Often the wines are quite powerful, packed with the south’s sun and warmth. But they also have an amazing freshness and intense fruit that perfectly fits the gastronomy here. As, by the way, to the gastronomy at home. They are best known for their red wines, but even the whites can be of great quality. One of the exciting things down here is to discover the local grape varieties. Syrah and grenache (noir) are probably familiar to you, but here are many others, carignan (and even carignan blanc), grenache gris and blanc, and much, much more. Even sauvignon blanc and pinot noir if you look closely.

To give you a little bit better sense of what you can expect from the book and from the region – of course, you have to go there and enjoy the wines on-site! – we wanted to share a selection of pictures from the Languedoc-Roussillon book which we hope can convey some sense of this beautiful and dramatic place.

Unfortunately…. the book is currently only available in Swedish. We don’t have an international publisher. (Yet?)

Get inspired!
