Explore La Liviniere Cru wines.

Stay at La Souqueto accommodation and let us create a bespoke wine tour for you of the Minervois Wines..

La Liviniere was the first Cru of the Languedoc, recognised in 1999. This AOC territory consists of six villages: La Liviniere, Siran, Felines-Minervois, Cesseras, Azille, and Azillanet.

The bedrock of the La Liviniere terroir is a limestone plateau that leads back as far as the Massif Central. It’s a melting pot of minerals, sandstone, quartz, marble, limestone, sand and clay. Over 350 hectares of vines are perched from 80 to 300 meters high and scattered in the garrigue, woods and terraces.

Syrah, Grenache & Carignan grapes.

The sunny nature of the red wines of La Liviniere is tempered by the breezes that sweep down from the plateau at night. Forty-two winemakers and two cooperative wineries are based here and they use Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan vine varieties.

Explore La Liviniere from La Souqueto Accommodation

Each year we organise and host a series of bespoke wine tours and walks for guests staying at our award winning holiday Accommodation. We continue to explore and find off the beaten track and usually small domains where owners are prepared to take time to present their wines. We combine visits to domains with meals at local wonderful restaurants. Please contact us directly for your bespoke group wine tour. jon@lasouqueto.com
