The Minervois is one of the largest wine-producing areas in Languedoc Roussillon. Of nearly 15 000 hectares of vines, of which 5 000 are destined for the production of AOC wines, the broad palette of vins de table, vins de pays and wines from single grape varieties is completed by three distinct AOCS : the AOC Minervois, the AOC Minervois – La Livinière and the Muscat de Saint Jean de Minervois.
Our preferred winemaker is at Chateau Gibalalaux-Bonnet at Laure-Minervois
