A selection of quality wine producers from the Vinisud wine fair

Just a few weeks after Millésime Bio (which we wrote about in the last issue of the brief), it was time for Vinisud, also in Montpellier. Vinisud is held every two years for three days around the 20th of February and this year was the twentieth edition.

Vinisud is a wine fair that wants to include the entire Mediterranean region but is actually (and not so surprisingly) much dominated by southern French producers from Languedoc-Roussillon, southern Rhone Valley and Provence. South-West is also represented as are a smaller number of exhibitors from Italy and Spain.

At Vinisud you will find both the major players, such as large companies and cooperatives, and the small producers. This year there were nearly 1700 exhibitors and even if you work hard for three days, you will, of course, only try wines from a fraction of these. We made some new, interesting acquaintances, and we renewed some old acquaintances whose wines we hadn’t tried for some time.

Here are some favourites (in no particular order):

  • Domaine Sainte Croix, Corbières
  • Coume de Roy, Roussillon
  • Clos Marie, Languedoc Pic Saint Loup
  • Domaine Lacroix-Vanel, Languedoc Pezenas
  • Mas Bruguieres, Languedoc Pic Saint Loup
  • Domaine Grecaux, Languedoc Montpeyroux
  • Domaine Pouderoux, Roussillon
  • Domaine des Enfants, Roussillon
  • Domaine Serre Romani, Roussillon
  • Domaine des Trois Orris, Roussillon
  • La Nouvelle Don(n)é, Roussillon
