Located 25 minutes from Montpellier, Pic Saint-Loup rises up at the start of the Cévennes foothills in an area of scrubland (garrigue) to the north of Montpellier.
Its peak, reached by a one hour hiking trail, rises to 658 metres, is marked by a chapel and cross and offers breathtaking panoramas.
The vegetation, characteristically adapted to summer drought, is made up of several typically Mediterranean species — Holm oak, Kermes oak, Aleppo pine, Arbutus trees...
These help to make up the fragant nature of wines from Pic Saint-Loup.
'Coteaux du Languedoc AOC' - Pic Saint Loup, is the most northerly of Languedoc's appellations.
