GO ON AN ADVENTURE ALONG

La Clape Wine Route

Set off on the La Clape wine route. It winds between the sea and scrubland through the relief of the massif of La Clape and flows into a sea of vines as far as the eye can see in the direction of Fleury d'Aude.
The white wines made with  Bourboulenc grapes are the most typical.
An invitation to taste some great wine and discover a selection from 13 estates.

"AOC La Clape"

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.

The map

While on the La Clape road to explore the  wineries, you will pass through a site classified since 1973 for its fauna, flora and exceptionally beautiful landscapes. A viewpoint on the D168 road makes a magical panorama enhanced by the song of the cicadas, and aromas of the scrublands and pine trees.
