WINES OF LANGUEDOC

The Languedoc is one of the world's oldest wine-growing regions dating back thousands of years. It stretches from the Pyrenees to the Mediterranean Sea. The appellations of this region include Corbières, Coteaux du Languedoc, Minervois, Saint-Chinian, Faugères, Minervois La Livinière, Fitou, Cabardès, Malepère, Clairette du Languedoc, Les Muscats and Limoux sparkling wines. It is a diverse region of arid soils, rolling valleys, terraced hillsides and seacoast. The wines of this region reflect this diversity full-bodied, robust, well-rounded and perfectly structured.

In Languedoc's creative climate, growers are experimenting with noble grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc). As they are not traditional Languedoc varieties, growers cannot use the AOC designation. In some instances, these "Vins de Pays" command higher prices than the AOC's of the region.
