Cave de Roquebrun, created in 1967, is located in the Haut Languedoc Regional Park, 30 km north of Béziers between the two regional capitals Montpellier and Toulouse.
The village of Roquebrun benefits from an exceptional microclimate allowing the cultivation of orange trees, lemon trees, mandarin trees in the open ground, which produce a citrus crop for local consumption.
This very mild, but relatively arid climate, associated with the acidic soils of schists, allow a particular development of the different grape varieties of the Saint-Chinian appellation, notably Carignan, an ancestral grape variety which claims its place in the arid hillsides, as well as the Grenache, also present for a long time.
Syrah and Mourvèdre, for other types of implantation, exploding their aromatic potential for the development of products of recognized quality and typicity.
