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.

LA CAVE DE GRUISSAN - Avenue de la Douane, 11430 Gruissan

Cave de Gruissan is not a place where you buy wine to save in your cellar for years. Still we go there regularly to get a few cases. Our favorite is a sparkling wine for a very good price. It comes in a well-designed bottle and is actually very good and absolutely perfect for a kir royal.

The cave has a good selection of nice rosé-wines and also good white. These are the kind of nice wines you can buy for everydays consumption as they are very affordable and well made. The cave also sell bag-in-box and you can bring your own container and fill it up with table-wine just as they did it in the old days.

They produce wine of AOP Corbières and AOP Coteaux du Languedoc La Clape but also a number of variety wines with appellation IPG Aude and IGP Pays Cathare. They also have a selection of sweet and half-sweet wine, but their Mousseux  blanc is really why we go there regularly.
