Changer l’Aude en Vin – Avril 26 2010 à Carcassonne

I just got my invite to this year’s Changer l’Aude en Vin (there is a pun here with the French phrase for turning water into wine). I first saw the flier in Jean Baptiste and Charlotte Sénat’s winery and it’s unsurprising that they’re at the heart of this gathering. Fifteen winemakers are gathering in the Cité de Carcassonne for a cool grassroots tasting. At least I’m guessing it’ll be a little more DIY than your average wine salon. The flyers are printed like punk posters and Sénat has a rebellious vibe. I look forward to seeing what happens.

And if 15 hand-picked Aude winemakers isn’t enough to draw you to the event, the pot has been sweetened this year. They’ve invited 5 organic producers from the Marne to show off some of their Chamagnes. Sénat never misses a pun and redubs the event “Changer l’Aube en Vin”. I’m not really sure why they added Champagne this year, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was just for the pun. :D

So a Love That Languedoc rarity, we’ll be talking champagne.

On a related note, I really wish I had been able to attend the Treloar art expo opening a couple weeks back. Hopefully a few of my readers had a chance to swing by the event and taste some wine and see some art. I like all the winemaker initiatives going on in the region. Gives me a lot of hope!

Je viens de recevoir mon invitation “Changer l’Aude en Vin 2010″,  un rassemblement sur la Cité de Carcassonne de 15 vignerons Audois, tous certifiés ou en conversion vers l’Agricutlure Biologique. Une réunion qui devrait attirer beaucoup d’attention.

Cela fait du bien de voir des efforts comme celui-ci initiés et organisés pars les vignerons. Entre “Changer l’Aude en Vin”, l’exposition d’art organisée par le Domaine Treloar plus tôt dans l’année, et d’autres évènements, j’ai de grands espoirs pour les vignerons du Languedoc Roussillon.
