Heritages sites

Languedoc-Roussillon, a frontier region and historically the scene of struggles, offers up an outstanding architectural and cultural heritage: Celtic oppida, Roman remains, Cistercian abbeys, mediaeval castles, and Romanesque or Gothic churches. More recent additions include winery architecture from the 19th century, with co-operative and independent wineries catering for even the most inquisitive sightseers. Wine growing is part of this historic and cultural context and helped shape the landscapes. It is therefore only logical that the area’s wines should be called after these heritage sites, some of which are renowned internationally.
