A schistous association

>> Thursday, April 01, 2010

There are quite a few wine regions with schist soil and many produce excellent wines. Some examples: many parts of the Languedoc, some areas in Anjou, the Douro Valley, Priorat in Spain etc. At Vinisud recently an association for the promotion of schist soil wines was launched: “L’Association Les Terroirs de Schistes (du monde)”. At the launch some delicious tapas were served on, you guessed, slabs of slate instead of plates. In view of the quality of the wines from such soils this will be an interesting initiative to follow. More (but not much) info on www.faugeres.com or from www.aoc-agence.com
