It makes you happy when you read such things. “Few books have made me long for southern France like this one.” This is what Dag Sandahl writes in his review of “Languedoc-Roussillon, the wines of southern France”. Dag continues in his review “there are good reasons to read it and be fascinated by their knowledge that has now become easily accessible”, and also “the most fascinating things in the book may not be so much about grape varieties and soils but about people who are dedicated to creating good wines”. That’s exactly what we hoped to achieve with this, our latest book.
We want to inspire and enthuse. We want the reader to become tempted to go exploring. We want to tell the reader about all these wine producers, enthusiasts, dedicated, creative, who make wines in this wine region. We also want to show how beautiful and magnificent nature can be here, in an area that stretches from the end of the Rhone Valley right down to the Pyrenees on the Spanish border.
Or as Dag says in his book review: “The cover image from the medieval town of Carcassonne gives creates a longing and when I have passed Carcassonne I know that I will stop for tasting in Limoux”. When we read such things, we feel that we have succeeded fairly well.
The book also recently won the prestigious OIV Award in the category “discovering and presenting wine”.
