Region for Gourmet - Products of the soil
The soils and climate naturally favour the development of vineyards in this area. The labels "vin de Pays" and "Vin de Pays d'Oc" refer to a guaranteed standard of origin and production and only wine from the Languedoc Roussillon can use them.
AOC: for many years, producers have been trying to improve the quality of their wine in order to attain the superior classification of Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée "Coteaux du Languedoc".
The red wines are dark in colour and are perfumed with fragrances from the "garrigue", spices and red fruit. The rosé wine is floal with slight fragrances of red fruit, while the white wine is fruity with hints of acacia flowers.

The originally wine farmer's aperitif is made from fresh grapes. The recipe for both a white or a red drink has been passed down through the generations and is still popular today.
This natural product has been used in the region since the antiquity. Harvested green in september, the olives are eatenb with the aperitif. Left to ripen on the tree, the olives become black and are picked in mid-winter to extract their oil..
The "Pelardon" is a small goat's cheese originating from the Cévenole region. Fresh "pélardon" cheese is creamy with a taste of hazelnuts. Mor mature "pélardon" is harder with a more pronounced taste. This cheese is protected by an AOC classification which has guaranteed it's origins and quality of production since 2000.
