it stretches from Nimes in the east to the Spanish border in the west and
consists of a multitude of quality appellations and a more generic source of
good value Vin de Pays. This region is rich in cultural heritage and geography
offering a great diversity of wine styles. The unique concept of terroir and
tradition work in harmony with the modern varietal approach and a new wave of
young, passionate and dynamic producers have established themselves. In the
past this area was infamous for its poorer quality viticulture with over
production yielding copious quantities of Vin de Table. This is no longer the
case, yields have been significantly reduced and quality is now paramount.
Established deep-rooted vines of the traditional indigenous grape varieties
such as Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan are grown alongside less traditional
ones such as Syrah, Chardonnay and Merlot offering a great diversity of styles
and flavours. The breathtaking landscape of sea and mountains, together with
the sunny climate and the rich local flavours of Mediterranean food, convey the
characteristics of Languedoc’s unique and wonderful wines.
