Wine Education and Tailor made French Wine Tours – Come Wine with me!

WineHunters Wine Shop | Wines of the Languedoc, WineHunters

Hi to all our wine lovers - As I am sure you know by now, the Languedoc is my second home, for many reasons, one being that there has been a major wine revolution taking place here over the last 10 to 15 years. As a result, this remarkable region s now regarded as the “next French Grand Cru area – great wines in the old world style with a new world approach”. Mix this together with ancient towns and villages, a diverse history influenced by so many different cultures, breathtaking landscape and the finest of local cuisine, and you have an ‘adventure paradise’ to fulfil your every dream.

So here is an invitation for you to join me there and enjoy the experience together – Alan Hunter
