This month the Winophiles bask in Occitanie – formerly Languedoc-Rousillion – and the AOPs of this rich and extensive region of southern France. January brings us to Minervois and Corbières two AOPs that are celebrated for quality, value, and authenticity.
Many of our participants take inspiration from the famous French dish cassoulet, which celebrates its very own special day on January 9th.
We’ll explore regional culture, wine, environment, food, and travel scope with our writers. Join us on Saturday, January 20th at 10 am CST for a live Twitter chat under the hashtag #Winophiles.
May We Present…
