This is the heartland of France's simple Vin de Table production, and was for many years France's chief contributor to the European 'wine lake'. However, the region is making strides to improve quality, and the wines that are most commonly exported are from the superior Vin de Pays category, in particular Vin de Pays d'Oc, which covers the whole of the Languedoc-Roussillon region. As a result of less taxing regulation than in other areas of France, vignerons have been encouraged to experiment, leading to an influx of foreign 'flying winemakers' who have brought new techniques and a love of fruity wines with them from the New World.
There is increasing recognition, however, of the region's historical appellations such as Corbières, Fitou or Minervois, which produce distinctive and high quality wines that can offer excellent value relative to France's more exalted regions such as Bordeaux or Burgundy.
Our range focuses on interesting wines either from go-ahead local cooperatives or passionate individuals for whom life revolves around wine. Because there are simply so many to choose from, there is no excuse for having anything but exceptional quality and value from the South of France.
