Update to Languedoc Roussillon wine blogs and twitter accounts

It’s been several months since I’ve updated the twitter and blogger lists for Languedoc Roussillon wine producers.  So I sat down and did it this morning!

Lots of winemakers have been added to the list of Tweeting winemakers:

A few winemaker blogs worth adding too:

  • Pour le Vin, Cotes Catalanes – Michel Smith doesn’t blog much about his wines, but he is a winemaker now so there you have it.
  • Domaine de Cadables, Gabian – Met Bernard Isarn at the Matinale du CIVL / BUCE event in Narbonne.
  • Sieur d’Arques, Limoux – A bit embarassed that I hadn’t seen this one sooner.  But there it is now!  :)

Then a few blogs that fall into some grey areas:

  • The Outsiders – strictly speaking, this is a blog for a group of winemakers.  But the winemakers don’t handle the blogging ourselves.  But a lot of the text is written by us.
  • Idées Liquides et Solides – I don’t think Vincent Pousson is a winemaker, strictly speaking (although I might be wrong!)  I know he designs the labels and aesthetics for Castelmaure and is very heavily implicated in their communication strategy.  Anyway, he blogs under his own name, but I can’t help thinking of it as an extension of the Castelmaure cooperative (even though it’s explicitly not that).
  • 20 de Corbieres – This is a website hosted by the AOC Corbieres / CIVL (an interprofessional group) and it hosts a blog that any winemaker in the Corbieres can post on.  This is a brilliant idea.  The Corbieres is massive and having a joint winemaker blog accessible to all its producers can generate a huge amount of quality first-person content with just a little bit of effort from each winemaker.  Awesome initiative.  The posts are still often CIVL-ish or AOC-ish because some of them are posted by the syndicat Corbieres, so it’s not totally a winemaker blog.  But it’s getting very very close.  Or maybe even it’s better than a winemaker blog?

Languedoc Roussillon winemaker blogs updated

I just updated the list of Languedoc Roussillon winemaker blogs.  Also some minor changes to the list of facebookers and twitterers.

This post simply summarizes the updates.  For the complete lists, click on one of the following:

I was worried that a lot of blogs would fall into the inactive list.  But to my great surprise, people have really brought these back to life.  We’re in an unprecedented golden age in Languedoc Roussillon wine blogging!  And maybe it’s vain, but I think that my dear readers might be part of the cause for that.  You all and your interest in our region is inspiring winemakers to hit the keyboard after dinner once every couple of months.  Thanks for your continued support and interest in our region!

Winemakers Who Tweet in the Languedoc-Roussillon

This is a list of Languedoc-Roussillon Domaines that tweet. We have a separate list of winemakers who blog. And a list of winemakers on facebook.

The region is pretty well-represented on Twitter, but it could be a lot better. I’m working on that by training winemakers to start increasing their web presence, but not all of them are ready to maintain an active Twitter account.

Interestingly, I noticed a lot more twitter accounts being held by a group of winemakers, an organization that represents them or a marketing representative that tweets for them. They are listed separately when I am capable of telling them apart.

This list also shows a lot winemakers with virtually no followers. Take the time to check them out and maybe a few will be to your liking. Or you can follow the entire list of Languedoc-Roussillon Winemaking Tweeters.

Group Accounts

Communications / Representative Accounts

  • Virgile Joly
  • Louise Hurren – Even though Louise doesn’t pretend to be a winemaker, she tweets on their behalf a vast majority of the time
  • Vincent Pousson – This guy crafts a lot of Castelmaure’s communications and I see him as an extension of that cooperative although I don’t think he’s a member… he might as well be.
  • Skalli Wines – Not only south of France but Skalli was a big influence in the Languedoc
  • ??? I have no idea who this is, but they are appear to be representing a winery near Limoux

If you know any other Languedoc Roussillon Domaines on Twitter, feel free to correct this list by emailing me or by commenting below.   I know a lot of folks but I don’t know everybody!  And sometimes I’m just forgetful.
