Arrogant Frog is an estate-bottled wine from the Languedoc region of southern France. Like its creator, winemaker Jean-Claude Mas, (aka the Humble Vintner), this wine is proud to assert its Mediterranean origin. Generations of the Mas family have tended to vineyards and made wine in the Languedoc region, and over the years, their wines have retained their vibrancy and refined charm. The wine is sealed with a dependable screw cap to preserve freshness and youthful appeal. Arrogant Frog delivers exceptional quality for the price and is confident of its ability to impress.
