From: Languedoc, France

Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is a commune in the Hérault department in the Occitanie region in southern France. Situated in the narrow valley of the Gellone river where it meets the steep-sided gorge of the Hérault River, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is essentially a medieval village located on the Chemin de St-Jacques pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostella. Jeff Welburn owns La Domitienne, from the Latin Via Domitia—the road linking ancient Rome with Cadiz, Spain. This historic route allowed the Romans to control all of southern Gaul (modern day France). Production is carried out in a local co-op shared by many of the local growers.
Tasting Notes: On a mature vine, Carignan produces an amazing wine with ripe cherry and plum expanded by aging in oak barrels.
Pairing: Provides the necessary elements to match the foods of Provence like grilled meats, game, and hearty stews.
