Meet Katie Jones – the winemaker who bounced back after a cruel act of vandalism

Katie Jones is one of the talented independent winemakers crowd-funded by Naked Wines’ ‘Angels’.  Katie turned to Naked after vandals poured her entire year’s vintage down the drain.

Thanks to Angel funding, she was back on her feet in no time, making a selection of seriously robust and juicy red wines.

Katie has a selection of small vineyards with some seriously old vines. Her La Voie Corbieres is a stunning example of the Carignan grape; it’s chock-full of tasty fruit, wild herbs, and the unique character of the area in which it’s grown and made.

Say hello to Katie’s Languedoc-Roussillon

For a selection of wines with serious bang for buck credentials, avoid the popular and very expensive regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, and head to the lesser-known area of the Languedoc Roussillon.

Based in southern France, the Languedoc-Roussillon stretches for 150 miles along the Mediterranean coastline, from the border with Spain to the region of Provence.

The Languedoc-Roussillon’s gorgeously hot, sunny and dry climate is a grape growers’ dream. It’s a huge wine region, with over 700,000 acres planted with vine – making it the biggest wine-producing region in the world.

A question of quality not quantity!

High volumes aren’t always a good thing, and the Languedoc hasn’t always had the best quality reputation. Happily, mass over-production of cheap table wines is now a thing of the past. Lots of talented winemakers are now focusing on older vines, lower yields and higher quality wines which really pack a punch.

So what to expect from your Languedoc wine picks? Whatever your colour preference, you are guaranteed wines full of character and personality

Reds are big and ballsy, with oodles of juicy fruit. Look out for Carignan, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Grenache. White wines are usually unoaked, fresh and zesty. Keep your eyes peeled for fresh-as-a-daisy Picpoul de Pinet and Sauvignon Blanc.

The best bit? The French still can’t quite get their heads around the step change in quality and remain suspicious of anything higher priced. Which means us UK folk get to benefit from a load of high quality exports.

Languedoc Case

A region of wine artists

Even better, because the Languedoc isn’t a super posh wine region, it’s governed by fewer rules. Which grape varieties to plant? Anything goes! What wine making techniques to use? Whatever you fancy! Winemakers are free to experiment and allow their wine to express their personalities.

The result? Some beautiful single varietal wines, and some unusually delicious blends. And of course, an increasingly high quality range of wines which still offer incredible value for money.
