Roussillon wines spread good cheer. France's Roussillon region is south of Languedoc, and north of Spain. A large swath of its southeastern points border the Mediterranean Sea. The Pyrénées mountains separate France and Spain to create Roussillon’s legendary “amphitheater” bordered in the north by the Corbières Hills. During daylight hours, this naturally-occurring formation concentrates near-constant sunshine in Roussillon's grapes. Diurnal shifts guarantee sufficient cooling in the evening and overnight.

Over time, tectonic movements have shuffled Roussillon’s underground beds of sediment to create an eclectic array of terroirs which carry through every Roussillon wine. You will taste the composition of compact limestone, clay, silt, marl, schist and more, mixed among the pebbles and rocks, whirring beneath ripe, sun-drenched fruits. The following wines, available for sale here, demonstrate the region's capacity for distinct minerality across a mosaic of terroirs in various sub-regions. The pack also showcases the expertise of the region's winemakers; each blend is unique. Read on to learn more.
