An exceptional vineyard  

The Languedoc vineyard alone sweeps three departments: Aude, Gard and Herault. It is on this area that we find both Appellations of Controlled Origin such as AOC Languedoc or AOC Pic Saint Loup but also wines from Protected Geographical Indications such as IGP Oc or the IGP Hills of the Moure.

With a surface area of ​​40,000 hectares, the Languedoc vineyard enjoys a great diversity of soils with a multitude of soils, climates and grape varieties whose different marriages make them unique wines. The contrasts are numerous between the rigors of the foothills of the Pyrenees and the Massif Central and the sweets of the shores of the Mediterranean.

Sales of Languedoc wines have been booming in recent years.
