Wild Pig
It all started with Greta, a wild pig
France, Languedoc, Wild Pig, ‘to Greta’, Chardonnay, Vin de Pays d’Oc, 2013

Maison Gabriel Meffre has been crafting Wild Pig for over fifteen years and it all started with Greta, a wild pig. Attracted to the vineyards in the Languedoc, south France, coming down from the Cévennes Mountains, one of these shrewd pigs stood out, was named Greta and the name for a new cuvée was born. This fruity wine is made from the best grapes and Greta would have preferred to eat them....

The Languedoc-Roussillon has developed itself into France’s best value and probably its most exciting wine region. It is still the biggest wine region in the world, as wells as the oldest wine region in France, with around 30.000 growers, taking most of its grapes to over 350 cooperatives. However, it leaves ample space for exciting wine makers, growing the reputation of the region.
