In the Pays d’Oc, the key to a wine’s character is held by the grape varietal used for its production. The unique nature of Pays d’Oc PGI wines resides its offering of an array of wines with a broad spectrum of taste and aroma qualities, owing to the 58 varieties of grape used. Their aromas are expressed either alone (single varietals), or blended (bi-varietals and blends).
The versatility offered by this innovative concept of varietal wines has, over the 30 years of the label’s existence, attracted almost 20,000 Languedoc and Roussillon vineyards in the greater Occitania region. Housed in special cellars or cooperative cellars over the four municipal regions of Hérault, Gard, the Pyrénées-Orientales and Aude and across the six districts of Lozère, their creativity is given free rein, allowing for the invention of new realms of expression for the wines, while such versatility is also expressed through the diversity of its vineyards.
Benefiting from exceptional climates and soil diversity, the territory allows for the production of wines with rich aromas and flavours imparted by the sun and the passion of its producers. The specific profile of the Pays d’Oc PGI label can be attributed to this impressive diversity, as well as the distinctive character of its wines.
