IGP for the Wines - Vins des Sables from the Gulf of Lion


Vins des Sables from Camargue are famous for their gorgeous light rosé colours. The wines are rosé wines that come as “rosé”, “gris” and “gris de gris”.

Their lovely pale salmon colour, their elegance and their freshness are the perfect reflection of this area.

These “vins de sable” or sand-grown wines are primarily made from Grenache grapes. These wines are fruity and go beautifully with summer meals. Serve well-chilled, with grilled meats, fresh fish, summer salads and other dishes.

The vineyards in Camargue are planted on sandy soils along the coast. Wine-growing is a very ancient tradition here in the sand of Camargue. In the 19th century, when the phylloxera epidemic destroyed the vineyards in the Languedoc, the sandy soils in Camargue were not affected by the terrible insect, which led to even greater demand and growth in the vineyards.

There are also excellent white and red wines in the appellation.
