Languedoc WineLanguedoc takes its name from the language that was spoken, Oc, and compromises the départments of Gard, Hérault and Aude. The wine region of the Languedoc sweeps in a 200km arc from the mysterious wetlands of the Camargue to the hills of Corbières, north of Perpignan, extending further west as far as the medieval citadel of Carcassonne. Generalisations are difficult for what is the single largest wine region in the world – 300,000 hectares incorporating 30,000 winemakers most of whom supply vin ordinaire to over 300 co-operatives. However, affordable land and relatively broad appellation rules have allowed many young, enigmatic and adventurous vignerons to make their mark in exciting regions such as Pic St Loup, Faugères, Thongue and the Limoux.
