This cooperative group unites several tiny village cooperative wineries and over 20 small domaines and chateaux covering the high quality Haut-Minervois (‘Upper Minervois’) wine-producing area. Their vineyards - spanning 7000 hectares – comprise some of the most interesting and varied ‘terroirs’ of the region: cool, light-reflective schistous terraces; breezy limestone hillsides; and the sandy-soils of old pre-phylloxeric vineyards vines bordering the Canal du Midi.
Such diversity gives access to grapes of many varieties, styles and qualities, bringing with it a dazzling and unrivalled array of different styles and qualities of wine, yet all displaying the winery’s hallmark richness and appetising freshness.

France’s ancient Languedoc-Roussillon wine region is also its most dynamic. Sweeping from Provence to the Spanish border, the Languedoc-Roussillon features craggy mountains, rolling hills, salt flats, and broad plains, harbouring vineyard sites and soils of unrivalled diversity. Warm, dry conditions, cooling Mediterranean breezes, and luminous sunshine give intensely-flavoured grapes. If this weren’t enough, cheap land has attracted a new generation of winemakers, bringing investment, expertise and a new appreciation of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s unique terroir.
