Saint Chinian

Awarded AOC status in 1982, and considered to be the oldest wine-making region in the Languedoc-Roussillon, Saint Chinian has been in operation since ancient times, being fully developed during the Roman period. Today, there are around 20 villages producing red wines (along with a small quantity of rose) over 3,000 hectares of land to the north of Beizers, who claim to be the 'wine capital of the world'!
