Pic Saint Loup is now a proper appellation

Pic Saint Loup Languedoc obtained its own appellation, AOP Pic Saint Loup, on the 7th of September. Not a day too early, according to many people. Pic Saint Loup, located about 20 kilometres north of Montpellier, was until now a sub-district of AOP Languedoc. For a long time it has been a dynamic district with a range of excellent producers and a generally high level of quality of its wines.

The new appellation Pic Saint Loup includes 17 villages and 1,000 hectares of vines and is valid for the red and rosé wines. The reds account for 90% of the production. The soil is mainly limestone.

Some of our favourite producers in the Pic Saint Loup are Domaine Cazeneuve, Domaine Clos Marie, Mas Bruguières, Domaine de l’Hortus, Domaine Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup Bergerie du Capucin, Mas de Morties and Domaine Zumbaum Tomasi.
