This dry white wine serves well as a table wine and is priced as such. It went for about €15 (C$23-ish) on a restaurant menu, but research shows that it retails at €5.90 from the winery in Montpellier.

This wine is classed as Vin de Pays d’Oc, which means that it’s a regional wine from Languedoc, the area that spans from the Mediterranean coast to the Spanish border to Provence. This classification might be familiar to many wine drinkers, as the region has 2,800 square kilometers of vineyards and is the world’s leader in regional wine production – pumping out more wine than all of the U.S.A.

The area is better known for reds than whites, but this white is simple, slightly acidic and citrusy which makes it great to pair with fish. Keep an eye out for great value from this area when looking for a wine to pair with your fish dinner at home. For more ideas, read over the France by the Glass wine list.
