As any gourmet will tell you, food and wines go together.
Every region produces drinks and foods that fit each other,
so it is easy to find complimentary foods any wine, and
wines for any foods. All you need to do is copy combinations
from the place of origin. This is of course true for the
Languedoc, as for everywhere else.
Red wine is suitable as an accompaniment to grilled red meat, game, paté, sausages, salami, and feathered game. Rosé wine is suitable as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to salad, savoury tarts and omelettes. White wine is suitable as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to local fish and other sea foods.
