Ranked among the greats Major sites in Occitania the most remarkable, the medieval city of Carcassonne also draws its charm from the expanses of vineyards that surround it. Because its ramparts dominate a wine-growing land which has around thirty estates producing the majority of their wines under the label IGP City of Carcassonne. On these soils, which are suitable for growing vines, the climate is determined by the geographic conjunction of Mediterranean and oceanic influences. The same is true of the grape varieties among which typical varieties of both the south-east and the south-west coexist. No wonder then that Merlot and Cabernets mix there with Grenache and Syrah. Red wine, rosé wine and white wine are to be found on this land deeply steeped in history and centuries-old traditions. Characterized by their fruit, their freshness and their structural balance, the wines produced in IGP City of Carcassonne testify to the commitment of the winegrowers to enhance the typical characteristics and climatic singularities of their ancestral land.
