Looking for great wines for your holiday meals? The Languedoc region offers a wealth of options to pair with all your favorite dishes. That’s because “garrigue” – the local word for resinous herbs like wild lavender, thyme, sage and rosemary – grows all around the vineyards, lending its heady aromas to the region’s wines. How many dishes can you think of that involve these herbs?
Here are a few of our favorite picks and pairings:
- Minervois and Herb Roasted Turkey
- Corbières and Lavender Roasted Potatoes
- Pic Saint Loup and Herbed Stuffing
- Picpoul de Pinet and Green Beans with Sage
