Summer is here: It’s time to break out the grills and the bathing suits – and of course, the perfect bottle of wine. Whether you’re looking for a crowd-pleaser to pair with burgers, brunch bubbles or a poolside refresher, the wines of Languedoc in the South of France offer the perfect solution.
Here are our top picks for all your summer drinking needs:
- Weeknight Grilling: Pick up a hearty red from AOP Corbières to pair with burgers or any grilled meat. These robust wines are sure to be the hit of the party.
- Weekend Brunch: Nothing says brunch quite like bubbles. Swap out Prosecco or Cava for a sparkling AOP Limoux, and get Champagne-like quality for a fraction of the price.
- With Oysters: With vineyards in view of the oyster beds of the Mediterranean, it’s no wonder AOP Picpoul de Pinet white wines are perfect with shellfish and seafood.
- At the beach or pool: Rosé might just be the official wine of summer. Grab a few bottles of Languedoc AOP pink wine and start the season off right.
