Les Argelières is a tribute to the “Terroir” from which these wines are produced, a terroir mostly made of pebble and limestone perfectly exposed to the sun. It enhances the fruit aromas as well as the mineral style of the white wines, whilst giving the reds a vibrant fruit character. The Pays d’Oc has a history of over 2600 years of vine-growing and winemaking. Over the centuries, the wine trade became more and more structured and grew rapidly. The region greatly benefits from the Mediterranean climate, bringing warm mist, and the Black Mountain which offers limestone and clay “terroirs” with cool temperatures.
