Collioure

This world-famous little port nestling in a Mediterranean creek is also a tiny appellation area alongside Banyuls in the communes of Banyuls-sur-Mer, Port Vendres and Banyuls Cerbère.

The vineyard thrives on schistous soils in a sunny climate influenced by the Tramontane and sea winds.

Collioure produces a powerful, velvety red wine and an elegant, generous rosé.
