winegrowing in Minerve

Minervois is an AOC in the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region. The red wines of the Minervois appellation are produced from Syrah and Mourvedre (minimum 20%); Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Lladoner Pelut (minimum 60%); and Carignan, Cinsault, Terret, Aspiran, and Piquepoul (maximum 40%). The white wines, which are less commonly found, may include Marsanne, Roussanne, Maccabeu, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache, Vermentino and small berry Muscat.[1]

AOC regulations require the wine to be blended, so varietal wines must be Vin de Pays. Historically, the region's capital has been the village of Minerve.
