Sud de France plans its first trade tasting in Bristol

19 May, 2016

Sud de France, the umbrella brand for wine, food and tourism from the newly extended Languedoc Roussillon Midi Pyrenees region of southern France is holding its first ever trade tasting in the city of Bristol.

The event, on 14 June between 11am and 6pm, will take place at The Grand Hotel on Broad Street in the city centre.

The tasting aims to present a taste of the “quality, diversity and outstanding value for money” that wines from this French region can deliver.

A select tranche of 13 of the region’s producers representing a cross-section of the region’s wines will be on hand to show their ranges to members of the wine trade.

Exhibitors include Picpoul de Pinet, AOC la Clape, Costieres de Nimes as well as a selection of wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon’s heartland appellations such as Corbieres, Minervois, Cotes du Roussillon and more.

Isabelle Kanaan, executive director of Sud de France, said: “Bristol is one of the UK’s most affluent and dynamic cities, creating a perfect environment for discerning wine drinkers which is why we’ve chosen to hold a Sud de France trade tasting in this city.”

Visitors will also be able to pick up a Midi Card, Sud de France’s brand new loyalty card, launched earlier this year. Stamps will be given to trade and press visitors each time they attend a Sud de France event, and anyone with a full card will receive a mixed case of stand-out premium wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon.

Talking terroir

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
