Appellation history

IMG_4716 IMG_4729On December 2, 1971, carried by Doctor André Parcé, a visionary man and President of the Syndicat du Cru, the Collioure Red appellation was born as one of the oldest vineyards in France. 1971 became an important first year for Roussillon dry wines to be recognized. As early as the 7th century, ancient authors described the Collioure region. The terroir here is the inheritance of ancient traditions and maintains a consistency of productions. After years of infiltration and the meticulous care of the local people, the terroir features have become more distinctive, and the wines produced are strong and thick, with elegant flavours.


Appellation introduction

Collioure11©apvr_ !bdIMG_4717Just as the fertile land has nurtured numerous fruits, the profound cultural combination of the Collioure region and the unique geographical environment have produced wines with amazing taste. The Collioure vineyard is set in terraces, bathed in the scenery of the Mediterranean climate and the nourishment of the Tramontana.

The Mediterranean climate, which is hot and dry in summer and mild and rainless in winter, is a natural barrier to effectively resist pests and diseases, and makes the grapes plump and juicy, sweet and delicious. The wine made from this material is rich in colour and tastes better and is exported to all over the world.

Collioure produces red, white wine and rosé wine. The grapes that used in Collioure red wines and rosé wines: Grenache noir, Carignan, Syrah and Mourvèdre. In white, we find Grenache grey and white, Tourbat, Macabeu and Vermentino. There are currently 45 independent winegrowers and 3 cooperative cellars produce in Collioure, around 15,000 hectoliters each year, almost 60% of which is red.
