As they uncover clues, players will have a chance to explore six neighborhoods in Manhattan and earn discounts toward Languedoc-Roussillon wine at participating wine retailers and restaurants.

To start the game, players review the instructions at https://www.facebook.com/suddefranceny and then select a neighborhood by sending a text message to a provided number. A destination and address will then be sent to the player along with a question. Answers to each question can only be found by visiting each destination. When players text back the correct answer they receive French trivia relating to that location, and the next clue. Once the participant has correctly answered all questions related to destinations in that neighborhood, he/she will receive a text message coupon offering a discount on Languedoc-Roussillon wine at nearby wine retailers and restaurants.

La Maison de la Région Languedoc-Roussillon in New York is the American branch of Sud de France Export, an organization created by the Languedoc-Roussillon region for the support of international development of regional businesses. Created in 2006 by the Languedoc-Roussillon region and with the support of industry professionals, Sud de France Export seeks to bring together all of the food and wine products of the Languedoc-Roussillon region under the same banner and to promote their placement in local, national and international markets.
