L’Atelier des Vignerons
The adventure began a little more than three years ago when Laurence and her husband took over the old delicatessen on the Place de la République, under the medieval arcades. “It’s a historic site in Limoux, it was also a café. That’s what we wanted, more than a shop, a place that had a history, a soul, so that the wine felt well there.”
Laurence and her husband are impassioned by wine, and not surprisingly: Laurence’s family has been growing grapes since 1898 and Serge is …. winemaker! Julien and Adrian for their part, are a privileged source of advice. “We know all the winemakers personally and our tasting committee selects the wines we offer one by one”.
The brilliant team is not satisfied just letting others benefit directly from their experience, they also like to take fans of wine out to meet the winemakers. Every weekend, one of them comes personally to explain his work and let people taste his wines in the shop. “Behind every wine is a winemaker, with his wishes and dreams; every winemaker is unique, as is every wine”.
Carefully placed on their wooden shelves, the elegant bottles unveil a voyage through all of Languedoc: on the one side, wines from along the coast, on the other those from inland, all the appellations are well-represented and a good place is reserved for the best organic estates. “We also like to present winemakers who are as careful about the environment as they are about the quality and taste of their wines.”
After that it’s up to everyone to let themselves be guided: from tasting workshops to cultural and festive meetings, from tapas evenings to wine and chocolate marriage, up to dinner concerts, the gatherings increase in number with passion and conviviality.
And occasions continue to arise because their good selection changes with the seasons and with what they’ve found, like the good ideas aimed at helping to make better known the magnificent wines of the region.
We have just travelled to discover the sparkling wines of Limoux accompanied by oysters fresh up from Leucate and we savour the discovery of this lovely address, one which has even thought of all those unable to come: all the wines are also available online and can be sent all over Europe!
