Bracketed by the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the Pyrénées, the Corbières, and the Cevennes, the Occitanie region in the south of France is arguably the country’s most diverse in terms of gastronomy and viniculture.
Join us for a special masterclass exploring the variety of wines and cheese produced in this historic region dating back to the Phoenicians and Romans.
Mathilde Bernard, director of Sud de France USA, and Jamal Rayyis, wine journalist and Occitanie expert, will take us on a oeniphile’s tour of the region through a tricolor selection of wines: a white from volcanic soils of Languedoc, a red Marcillac made from the Mansois grape, and a light and crisp rosé from Roussillon.
Baptiste Elhorry, Retail & Operations Manager at the French Cheese Board, will recommend delicious cheese pairings from the region.
45 minutes including Q&A
- Domaine du Cros Sang del Pais 2018 Marcillac
- Domaine d’Aupilhac 2017 Blanc Mont Baudile IGP
