Origin & Terroirs

Invia Virtuti nulla est via. No way is impassable to virtue.
This is Montaignan’s motto.

Ovid’s quote is from ‘’The Metamorphosis’’ poem. Greek mythology greatly influenced the beginning of winemaking in France, as Dionysus transferred the winegrowing and winemaking knowledge to humans. Since then, many generations have pursued the paths of winegrowing and winemaking, following their passion and devotion to their vineyards and lands in the Languedoc region, in the South of France. Throughout the centuries, they have done back-breaking work in the vineyards, resulting in great strength which still leads them today into crafting wines based on their roots and contemporary know-how. Our winemakers care deeply about the vineyards, their soils & growth, while using the latest winemaking techniques inspired by both the Old & New Worlds.

Exclusively sourced from vineyards in the Languedoc, the region is a wide amphitheatre stretching from the Spanish border to the Nîmes area on the East side. It is also bordered by the Pyrenees mountains in the South, and the Black Mountains (Cevennes foothills) to the North. Such breadth and diversity have made the area one of the largest wine producing regions in the world, offering a wide range of soils and climates.

Such diversity has been transposed into the Montaignan range. We select different grape varieties from different terroirs, always to offer you fruity wines.
