Coteaux du Languedoc (9) has a very long history. Allegedly the Greeks planted the first vine in Coteaux du Languedoc around 500 years B.C. This is a long time before the Romans, although they dramatically improved the wine making process themselves.

Coteaux du Languedoc is a large wine area, from Narbonne in the west to the edge of Camargue in the east and up to the Cevennes mountains. Actually the Coteaux du Languedoc is so large it is subdivided into the following sub-appellations:

Gres de Montpellier (including Saint Georges d'Orques: La Clape and Quatourze)

Pezenas (and Cabieres)

Pic Saint Loup

Picpoul de Pinet

Terrasses de Beziers

Terrasses du Larzac (with Montpeyroux and Saint Saturnin)

Terres de Sommieres

A "coteaux" means a hill that is covered by vines.
