On the Côte du Midi, the Minervois vineyards extend from the gateway to Narbonne in the north around the Canal du Midi, and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Recognised in 1985 as an appellation, the Minervois has been making wine since Roman times, receiving a major boost when the Canal du Midi was built to carry the wines to Bordeaux by barge.
A vineyard on a plain swept by the winds of the Mediterranean and marked by man with capitelles and low dry-stone walls. The most astonishing are the "châteaux pinardiers" which bear witness to the wealth of the wine producers in the last century.

The Wines of Minervois

Céline Deschamps

The white wines are characterised by Grenache, Bourboulenc, Macabeo, Marsanne, Roussane, creating lively, mineral wines.
The red wines of Minervois are known for their roundness and elegance with all the finesse of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and Mourvèdre.
The rosé wines are aromatic and are made from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Lledoner Pelut...

Mireille Greuzard WINE PRODUCER IN THE DOMAINE DE L'HERBE SAINTE

"The biodiversity is rich, the trees are numerous and are regularly planted. The estate stimulates the senses. The colours of the fruit trees, the scent of the aromatic plants, the birdsong and the fruity and spicy flavours of the local wines.

I look forward to your visit when you can share my passion and to tell you all about my favourite places on the Côte du Midi. For example: the hamlet of Somail and the Auberge du Somail restaurant with its shady terrace. Or a visit to the  L'Oulibo cooperative where you will see how well our Lucques olives pair with our white Harmonie, 100% Chardonnay, for an aperitif."

The map 

Most of the Minervois Wine Route runs along the Canal du Midi, which can also be cycled. The canal path is a peaceful, natural place. 

You can even walk between the Château de Ventenac and the Château de Paraza and visit the Canal Bridge of the Répudre halfway along your journey. As well as being an architectural marvel by the famous Pierre-Paul Riquet, there is a panoramic view of the Minervois vineyards from the Canal Bridge.
