The area produces a wide diversity of French red wines that enjoy IGP, AOC and AOP Languedoc status, with no fewer than 18 Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée in the Languedoc and 13 Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée in the Roussillon. Each terroir is characterised by specific soils, climates and particular grape varieties, and so each produces its own unique style of wine.

Corbières, Faugères, Fitou, Minervois, Pic Saint Loup, Saint Chinian... these are just a few of the red wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon that we’ve chosen for you.
