Roussillon Wines

Wine at the ‘center of the universe’

In his article “Wine at the ‘center of the universe’” in WAG Magazine, Doug Paulding talks about his press trip in Roussillon. He recalls that Roussillon is the first region producing “sweet wines”, underlines its difference with Languedoc and its affiliation with the Catalan culture, a legacy of its history.

Excerpt from the article:
“Roussillon, in the South of France — nestled amid the Pyrennees mountains, the Mediterranean Sea and the Spanish border — could well be the center of the universe of sweet wine production in France. [..] This trip to the Roussillon showed me these impressive wines can now stand alone. Order up some and take a journey.”
