Languedoc Roussillon

A large and widely spread wine growing region in South France, Languedoc-Roussillon is the coming together of two different regions, which have strong characters of their own. With this provenance, the combined Languedoc-Roussillon region displays many different characteristics in its wine.

Wineries in the Languedoc area have a quintessentially French character whilst Roussillon benefits from influences from its close links to Spain and Catalonia. The area has a huge 700,000 acres of vines, making it the single biggest growing region in the world and responsible for a third of the total production of France.

The major white grape across the region is Chardonnay whilst Chenin Blanc and Mauzac are also present. In terms of reds Grenache, Syrah and Carignan are amongst the major varietals used by many producers.
