Saint Mont got appellation status in 2011 for red,white and rose wines from 46 communes around the medieval Benedictine Abbey which once featured on the pilgrim route to Spain and where the vineyard is still in operation. Saint Mont is located 25 miles north of the town of Pau and 6 miles south-east of the village of Aire-sur-L'Adour. Like the Madiran appellation to the south the major grape for red wines is tannant. A local grape, braucol,sometimes called fer servadou or pinenc is also used.The Producteurs Plaimont co-operative group was instrumental in getting appellation status and is now responsible for 90% of production
