If I could dream up the perfect Sunday afternoon it would be hanging out in a beautiful space, laughing with girl friends and drinking rose. I know its pretty #basic but, hey, I'm going to embrace it.
To celebrate #LanguedocDay we basically did all of my favorite things. We rented an INCREDIBLE space in a refurbished Victorian in the Mission. We ate cheese. We drank rose. We learned some simple tips about how to apply makeup. Wine + makeup...what could go wrong?
All of this was to celebrate #LanguedocDay. In case you are like "Langue-what?" Languedoc is a region in France that has been known for wine for a very long time. Recently, it's back in the spotlight because of its offering of amazing wines at very approachable prices. I love when I discover a new wine that tastes like $$$ and only costs me $. Another fun fact is that 30% of Frances organic wines come from Languedoc so if you are looking for something natural this is the region for you!
We got to try a few different varietals. Here are my tasting notes from each of the wines...
Moulin de Gassac Rosé IGP Pays d'Herault 2017 - The perfect rose for a Sunday afternoon & paired well with the cheeses we were eating.
Florensac AOC Picpoul de Pinet 2017 - My favorite one of the three, and I'm not a white wine drinker. Very easy to drink and refreshing, make sure to serve super cold!
Domaine de Fontsainte Rouge AOC Corbières 2016 - A nice full-bodied red. Would be great paired with food for dinner!
Enjoy the pictures and make sure to try out wines from Languedoc soon!
