Largest vineyard in France and even in the world, with its 246,000 hectares of vines stretching from Nîmes to Perpignan. It is also one of the oldest in France with it's viticulture developed by the Romans in antiquity. Today it is the leading French producer in volume of red, white and rosé wines, but also the leading organic vineyard in France.
Languedoc-Roussillon is cradled by the Mediterranean climate and benefits from a great diversity of soils (clay-limestone, schist, sandstone, molasses, alluvion) and historical grape varieties (Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault for red wines ; Bourboulenc, Grenache Marsanne Roussanne for white wines) which allows it to produce wines with the most varied profiles.
The Languedoc-Roussillonnais winegrowers are among the most innovative and offbeat, the latest generation has succeeded in breaking the image of solar wines from the south by vinifying wines with finesse and intense freshness. The new generation is experimenting by planting grape varieties that are not yet cultivated in the region, and increasingly vinify using the natural method.
