Mas de Daumas Gassac | Languedoc

February 19, 2013 | 7:00pm – Our first Dinner takes us to the beautiful French region of Languedoc as we present the wines of Mas de Daumas Gassac and our special guest, Virgile Rousseau. Mas de Daumas Gassac uses several grapes not traditionally planted in Languedoc, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. This modest-sized winery has reached cult status – receiving widespread acknowledgement and is frequently referred to as the “Grand Cru of Languedoc.”
