This recognition is granted to 10 restaurants between the cities of New York and the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. These awards recognize on-premise accounts who have featured Languedoc AOC wines on their lists during a special promotional time frame – L’Aventure Languedoc. Participating accounts added and featured new Languedoc AOC wine SKUs to their lists and menus, offering creative menu pairings or tasting flights to introduce diners to the wines of this region.
“The restaurant environment is a key place for consumers to discover new wines”, notes Christine Molines, Marketing Director for the Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins du Languedoc. “With the opportunity to try a glass or enjoy the wine with a particular dish, they can feel confident in exploring all that Languedoc wines have to offer.”
Languedoc is the largest wine region in France and produces all styles and colors of wine, there is something for every palate. In fact, it is the number 1 producer by volume of French rosé wine. The region is also home to 30% of France’s organic viticulture which has proven an added bonus in making the category attractive to those restaurants with a focus on sustainable products.
