"AOC La Clape"
A young appellation d'origine contrôlée recognised in 2015, the terroir of La Clape is more than 17 kilometres long and its width is between Narbonne and the coast of the Côte du Midi. It covers the massif of La Clape culminating at 214 metres with the Pech-Redon.
An ancient island known in Roman times as "insula clapis" or “Clape” meaning "heap of pebbles" in Occitane, it is characterised by a thick garrigue of limestone cliffs and winding valleys.
The geology has encouraged vine-growing since ancient times. The wind blows 200 days a year and it receives 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, which are great conditions for growing grapes.
