14 May Book Launch at Maison Laurent...

'The Wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon'
by Wendy Gedney and illustrated by Jenny Baker

Wendy Gedney, of Vin en Vacances, who many of our guests already know from her fabulous tours, is launching her new book during April and May. It's a beautifully presented book, full of illustrations that fill you with nostalgia. It is bursting with Languedoc-Roussillon wine, food and cultural information that is fun to absorb. But the real beauty of Wendy's book is her passion for this unique landscape and her love of its wines.

The book describes the history of the wines, the terroirs and grape varieties and their effect on wine styles. It demystifies the wine laws of France and describes every appellation in the Languedoc-Roussillon.

14 May at Maison Laurent in Pieusse
Maison Laurent is hosting a book launch at our award winning chambres d'h├┤te in the village of Pieusse.
Join us between 12 noon and 3pm and Anthony will be rustling up some delicious nibbles which you can enjoy with a glass of Blanquette, meet Wendy and pick up a signed copy of her book.
If you are a guest of Maison Laurent over the summer and can't make it on the day but would still like a signed copy, please contact us at
