Sud de France to hold organic tasting

03 November, 2011

Generic body Sud de France is to hold an organic and biodynamic wine tasting this month.

Seventeen wineries from the Languedoc-Roussillon will show off their ranges at the tasting in the Maison de la Région Languedoc-Roussillon in London’s Cavendish Square on November 23.

Maison de la Région Languedoc-Roussillon executive director Isabelle Kanaan said: “The development of this sector is a priority for the regional council, which supports the promotion of organic products through its Sud de France communication activities.”  

Languedoc-Roussillon has the biggest area of organic vineyards in France at 16,462ha, up 30% from last year. The number of organic wineries grew 29% to 1,029.

The production of French organic wine is expected to double between 2010 and 2012 in response to growing global demand, Sud de France said.
