In the far south of Occitania is the Catalan country. It is the cradle of Coasts of Roussillon which radiate all around Perpignan. The wine-growing area leans against the Albères massif, the last segment of the Pyrenees beyond which extends Spain. In the north, the appellation stumbles over the vineyards of Fitou and Corbieres. To the west, the silhouette of Canigou dominates the landscape from its 2785 m altitude. Taking source from these surrounding reliefs, Agly, Têt and Tech irrigate the territory before descending eastwards to the sea. Coasts of Roussillon thus presents itself as a vast amphitheater open to the Mediterranean, facing the rising sun. Here is the setting of the Catalan country which produces the southernmost wines of the south of France. They come from vines which are laid out in terraces and hills then extend over the coastal plateau. The climate, typically Mediterranean, is particularly windy. The density of sunshine modulated by the local winds contributes to making this vineyard an ideal land for powerful and aromatic wines. Available in the three colors red, white and rosé, they take advantage of grape varieties that mark the regional identity: Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Macabeu, Roussane, Marsanne.
Several appellations are distributed in the heart of the Côtes du Roussillon, the distinction of which is based on their specific terroir, such as: Coasts of Roussillon les Aspres, Collioure and Banyuls grand Cru, Coasts of Roussillon Villages, Rivesaltes, Muscat de Rivesaltes, etc.
