Our Regions

Coteaux d’Aix en Provence, AOC

Provence sits alongside the Mediterranean coast-the home of Rosé. Our vines are planted on clay and limestone soils. The region is filled with shrubs and herbs such as rosemary, thyme and lavender producing a beautifully pale wine with notable aromatics and character.

Saint Chinian, AOC

The Lava et Magma Rosé grapes are sourced from selected vineyards on the sloping hillsides of Saint Chinian. This area lies on old volcanic soils that are composed of 70% schist, which helps create high-quality grapes with great structure and freshness. The vines are planted at a high altitude of up to 200 meters. The cool nights and warm days help the grapes to ripen slowly and develop more concentrated and complex flavours.

Côtes de Gascogne, IGP

The vines are planted on the highest hills of Ayzieu which is nicknamed ‘little Tuscany’ due to the rolling landscape interspersed with small, picturesque villages. The Atlantic Ocean still has an influence on the vineyards despite being behind Les Landes. The Alluvial soil is made up with clay and sand which gives Cuvée Topaz its beautiful, crystal pink colour.

Coteaux de Béziers, IGP

Coteaux de Béziers (Hills of Béziers) vineyards are within close proximity of the sea with a Mediterranean climate. The cooling, coastal breezes and clay soil help optimise the ripeness of the grapes by extend the ripening period. This produces delicate floral and fruit characteristics for Bijou Le Chic Rosé.

Cabrières, AOC

Cabrières is a tiny and idyllic region in the Languedoc-Roussillon just 30km north from the Mediterranean. It has a historical reputation for rosé production making up to 60% in volume.

We benefit from more than 220 days of sun per year which ensures plenty of sunlight to ripen our grapes. The vineyards of Cabrières lie high in the hills at altitudes of 200-450 metres, which means the micro-climate is significantly cooler than surrounding areas benefitting from cool nights. This helps ensure our grapes ripen slowly, whilst developing concentrated and complex flavours.

This charming little village is also dominated by the Pic de Vissou, an extinct volcano that provides our vineyards with very old soils, high levels of schist and a host of marine fossils. These unique volcanic soils give Le Bijou de Sophie Valrose Wines and Cuvée Jolie their characteristic aromatics, minerality and freshness.

Costières de Nîmes, AOC

Costières de Nîmes is the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley however being part of the Languedoc region. The region benefits from gravel and large pebbles known as ‘the gress’ which are deposited by the Rhône. These help retain the heat in the vineyard during the night to keep a constant temperature. The mistral (the strong northwesterly wind that blows from Southern France into the Gulf of Lion) also helps maintain the temperature in the vineyard. Our growers adhere to sustainable agriculture and are Terra Vitis certified.

 Limoux, AOC

Limoux is known for its production of Crémant de Limoux Rosé. It is typically made from Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Mauzac.  Crémant de Limoux is made in the traditional way, this means it undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle. Here in Limoux, we work with a family owned estate for over six generations using old vines of up to 40 years old. Our Limoux partners are Terra Vitis Certified. The vines grow on shallow, rocky soil, rich with schist and limestone as well as being planted at the top of south-facing topography for optimal sun exposure to ensure natural sweetness. The region also benefits from a cooler climate than the rest of the Languedoc which makes it perfect for sparkling wine production.
