In Narbonne, in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, between the Rhône and the Pyrenees, stands Maison Paul Herpe et Fils. Founded in 1919, it is one of the most important and ancient wineries in the South of France, one of the most renowned and extensive areas for wine production, eating and living well.
The Languedoc-Roussillon owes its fame to its characteristic and pleasant Mediterranean atmosphere, to its varied landscapes, enclosed between sea and mountains, a few steps from the sunny Spain. The diversity of territories and climates, allows the soils to develop unique characteristics and particularly favorable to the cultivation of the vine, raising the quality of the grapes and their variety significantly. In these areas, in fact, there are white, red, rosé and the famous Vin Doux Naturel, natural sweet wines such as AOC Banyuls.
In 90 years of winemaking, based on love for the land and respect for tradition, the Paul Herpe et Fils winery has a tradition and experience of 3 generations. In favor of the continuous search for quality and territorial expression, the Maison has always integrated traditional practice with modern experiments and methods that have led it over the years to produce excellent wines, appreciated throughout the world.
The company produces different types of wines, from the two owned vineyards, Château Couderc and Le Clos des Oliviers, offering representative products such as the AOC Minervois, Fitou and Corbières, Blanquette de Limoux and the AOC Banyuls.
