Les Vignobles Foncalieu:
Les Vignobles Foncalieu are like no other cooperative. Their technical teams include international talents who revel in a mosaic of huge terroirs. So it comes as no surprise to learn that Michel Bataille and the 1,200 wine growing estate owners made the choice to produce upmarket wines. In order to achieve excellence in terms of quality, they have invested in a number of cutting-edge facilities.
Stretching over a substantial area of land from the Massif Central to the eastern edges of the Pyrenees, the Languedoc Roussillon wine region is an amalgamation of different types of terrain, altitude, and terroir producing a wide range of quality wines since Roman times. The soils and climate of the area combine to make an ideal environment for vine growing, which is why the Languedoc Roussillon wine region accounts for about 40% of France’s total wine production. Because of this, there are many hidden gems to be found in this region from Vin de Pays producers as well as the more renowned AOC chateaux.
