When talking aboutwines in the Cevennes, France’s best sommelier, Philippe Nusswitz, describes our vineyard as an incredible territory offering wines with incomparable freshness and beautiful concentration. Do you enjoy PGIs too? Then “spread the word”: the Protected Geographical Indication “Cévennes” is worth a look!
Located in the former so-called Languedoc region in the south of France, the Cévennes vineyard takes its name from the Cevennes Massif, the last foothills of the Massif Central. Mostly cultivated on clay-limestone, shale, acidic soils and the alluvial plain of the Piedmont, this vineyard is part of ahilly landscape shaped by rivers with dreaded floods where orchards, olive trees and ancestral cereal crops are grown side by side.
Amplified with the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) of the wines of the Duchy of Uzès (whose area extends as far as Anduze), the recognition of the Cevennes vineyard has become for many an obvious one since the obtaining of the title PGI in 2011.
Take the time to discover or rediscover the 80 estates and wineries of the territory with the “Wines of the Cevennes” tourist map.
