The region of Languedoc Roussillon can trace back its wine-making history to around 500BC. The Greeks and then the Romans first exploited the sunny slopes of the Herault plain. Languedoc Roussillon boasts numerous Appellation Controlee producers and offers wines to suit every palette. The Aude features Minervois and Corbieres and is renowned for its full bodied reds, along with lively, young whites and roses each with its own twist. Fitou is one of the oldest vineyards in this area and is well worth seeking out. Along the Herault plain, wine-growers produce aromatic Muscat such as Mireval and Frontignan, with sweeter wines such as Banyuls and Rivesaltes to be found in the Grand Roussillon region. This region consists of 89 villages producing a range of sweet reds and whites to compliment all your culinary escapades.
