About

Les Vignobles Foncalieu are a union of cooperatives anchored in the heart of Languedoc. Their territory stretches from the Corbières massif to the banks of the Mediterranean, from the Mistral-swept hillsides to the sun-caressed plains between Carcassonne and Béziers.

It is in the heart of these landscapes, situated between ocean and mountains, that all their wine-growers tend to 4,000 hectares of vines every day in order to offer Foncalieu the high-quality grapes used to produce exceptional wines.

For thousands of years the Autan wind blowing in from the sea has been sweeping through Languedoc wine region in hot gusts, shaping the vines in the style of their terroir. In other words, authentic.
