The best wines from France’s largest wine-growing region
This unique region, which boasts 3 AOC and 5 IGP quality labels, is proud of its diverse range of terroirs: volcanic soil, sandstone, limestone, sand and pebbles. The influence of the sea helps create crisp, supple, elegant wines whereas, inland, the garrigue produces full-bodied, powerful and generous wines. You can discover our wines and meet our wine-growers at special wine events, at local markets, in the wine estates or during a vineyard stroll.
A party under the stars
Here, sunset doesn't signify the end of the day but rather marks the start of a riot of evening entertainment. Parties, shows, theatre, concerts, festivals, casino, cinema and theme parks etc. Craftsmen and winegrowers await you at the summer evening fairs and markets. Along the ports and beaches, bars and restaurants twinkle late into the night. Later on, the clubbing mood takes hold, with DJs spinning tracks, in discos, clubs and after-parties, that get the dance floors gyrating.
A charming, traditional region
There are thousands of things to do, visit and discover just a few kilometres away: the Pays du Thau region, Sète, Lake Salagou, the Hérault gorges, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Béziers, engineering structures along the Canal du Midi, Carcassonne, Uzès, le Pont du Gard, Montpellier, Nîmes etc.
An abundance of events!
