Located on the Vermeille coast, at the eastern end of the Pyrenees, the towns of Collioure and Banyuls have an incomparable historical and wine-growing heritage. The appellation area of these two AOCs is inseparable, although they do not produce the same types of wines.
Banyuls has made its reputation on its famous natural sweet wines, which since the 19th century have been exported throughout the world and now Collioure wines have been produced in red since 1971, rosé since 1991 and white since 2003.
Today, winegrowers must constantly overcome new challenges to enable this exceptional vineyard to continue through the ages. Winegrowers must now meet an ever-increasing demand while maintaining ancestral cultivation techniques and low yields per hectare.
The Vermeille coast has kept its superb beauty and now welcomes thousands of tourists every summer to enjoy its bright sunshine and mild evenings.
