The region offers a great diversity in terroirs and grape varieties (Carignan, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Grenache blanc, Muscat, Clairette, Maccabeu, Marsanne, Rousanne, Vermentino). Sparked by a new generation of winemakers, the Languedoc-Roussillon region producing white, red and rosé wines of increasing quality.
