About us

Boasting 26 centuries of wine growing, Pays d’Oc is following in the footsteps of the Romans and the Cistercian monks. Discover the history of the designation.

Following in the footsteps of the Romans who founded France’s oldest wine region around the Roman colony of Narbonne in 118 BC, Pays d’Oc winegrowers have celebrated the 30th anniversary of the creation of the designation. Its inception dates back to 1987 and revolves around the concept of varietal wines. Recognised as a Protected Geographical Indication at European level since August 2009, this official quality endorsement has allowed winegrowers to push the boundaries of wine styles, beyond those of the appellations.
