Minervois is an AOC in the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region. The red wines of the Minervois appellation are produced from Carignan (which can account for no more than 40% of the blend), Grenache, Lledoner Pelut, Mourvedre, and Syrah grapes. The white wines (which are less prevalent) include varieties such as Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Maccabeu, Bourboulenc, Rolle, Clairette Blanche and Muscat.
AOC regulations require the wine to be blended, so varietal wines are necessarily Vin de Pays. Historically, the region's capital has been the village of Minerve.
