A taste of the sweet life

La Dolce Vita Cuvee, an original Minervois wine



An original cuvee, made by Domaine La Parra in collaboration with La Dolce Vita.  This new wine is a mono-cepage made with pure, local Mourvedre grapes in a late harvest style producing a semi-sweet red wine.

After several conversation with Sonia & Celian Parra last year about options to create a cuvee just for me, La Dolce Vita, we came up with a sweet red wine - coming from ideas about something original and not often found in the Minervois or the Languedoc-Roussillon.  However, I had tasted a sweet red many (many) years ago with a chocolate dessert, and I never forgot that tasting moment, so it was !




A very light red, I decided to chill a bottle to see how it would taste at the level of a summer wine to refresh the palate . . . the results were a success, a nice chilled glass is the perfect wine for a light salad with fruit for lunch, or have a glass with some salty olives during the evening sunset.




Cuvee "La Dolce Vita" is also a great compliment to a very aged, strong cheese.  Also, a glass with fruit and a salty cheese goes down quite nicely.


Don't forget to have a sip, or two, with your homemade La Dolce Vita ice cream as well, especially the chocolate sorbet...

Currently the cuvee is only available here at La Dolce Vita, so come by for a taste and a bottle for your next adventure...a bientot !
