The Pays dOc is an immense viticultural region encompassing 741,300 acres of vines spread out across four departments in Southern France that border on the Gulf of Lion: the Aude, the Gard, the Herault and the Pyrenees-Orientales. The vast surface area of the vineyards accounts for the extraordinary diversity of their soils: sandy near the sea, limestone, schist, clay, and gravel which are all ideal for growing a wide variety of grapes destined for the making of great wines. The appellation, with its Mediterranean climate, benefits from an exceptional amount of sunshine. [+]
