Picpoul de Pinet AOP

There's nothing quite like the Picpoul de Pinet Appellation. It's a one off, one of the oldest vineyards in France. Bordering on the Thau Lagoon, close to the ancient ports of Sète and Agde, it's crossed by the Roman Domitienne Way. Its place in history was guaranteed in 1773 when Turgot, a future minister under Louis XVI, gave permission for each barrel to be branded with the famous "Fire mark" in recognition of the great quality of the Pinet vineyards.
