Languedoc A.O.P Introduction
During the 1970’s the Languedoc Roussillon was guilty of overproducing cheap jug wine. Old Grenache vineyards were ripped out and replaced with high-yield grape varieties such as Carignan. Since then, Languedoc Roussillon has slowly been recovering its status as a quality producer by reducing yields and going back to blending in more Grenache. The AOP from Languedoc Roussillon such as Picpoul de Pinet, Fitou, St Chinian… are now very popular and good value in many part of the world which makes it one of the most exciting wine region in the World.
