In the 90th we owned the Swedish wine import company Via Domitia, which was specialized on Languedoc wine. Now, as retired and living in Languedoc, we are still interested in wine and have the opportunity to have our former producers nearby and also to explore many new vine-yards. We like to share that experience with you in this guide.

SCEA DOMAINE DES JOUGLA - Prades sur Vernazobre, 34360 Saint-Chinian
Domaine des Jougla has been winegrowers since 1595. It was one of our first producers as importers of wine in the 90s and we were fortunate to introduce their cuvee Ancestral  on Copenhagen Airport - Kastrup’s wine-shop there it had a great success.

The production is manly red wine of AOP Saint Chinian, but they also make a few white. Among them are two Viogner, one of them is a Vdp du Mont de la Grage. They also make one rosé wine which is a AOP Saint Chinian.

We try to visit this producer at least once a year to get a few cases of their red wine to put in our cellar for later consumption. We still have a “forgotten” bottle of the prestige cuvèe Viel Arrasics but cuvee Initiale and Cuvèe Ancestrale are soon finished.
