Le Château de Gourgazaud Le Minervois The Minervois is one of the most ancient vineyards of the Mediterranean region. Indeed, its land was chosen by the Romans as providing ideal conditions for the first vines they planted in Languedoc Roussillon. Its name comes from the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold built by the Romans and dedicated to the goddess Minerva. Since that time, many amphora shards and vestiges of cellars have been discovered, testimony to the importance of this vineyard.

The Land The Minervois is situated at the southern extremity of the Massif Central, between Béziers and Carcassonne.

The vineyards of the appellation cover 4,500 hectares, situated on ancient terraces and slopes Read more »
