Roussillon

Languedoc-Roussillon

Roussillon Situated in the heart of the biggest ochre (hydrated iron oxide) deposit in Europe, Roussillon blazons forth its difference through an astonishing palette of flaming colors.

From the hills of Corbières to the Pyrénées mountains, Roussillon is the sunniest region in France. The climate, the history and the traditions of Roussillon make it more similar to Spain than to Languedoc. This is maybe the reason why Roussillon wines are still fighting to find an identity to those that compartmentalize the wines as 'French.'
