From Gascony to Languedoc, from Roussillon to the terraces of Larzac, you have the biggest wine region in France to explore! Visits to wineries, tastings, wine walks, wine festivals: the winemakers of Occitania welcome visitors and share an art of living.

ON THE WINE ROUTE

With over 260,000 hectares of vineyards, the Occitania region is the leading wine region in France. 33% of French wine is produced here. The organic vineyards in the region represent 30% of France’s total.

Foie Gras : an emblem of French gastronomy

Foie gras from south-west France is an essential speciality with a subtle flavour that is internationally unique. Occitania is its home: especially thanks to the Gers region, the number 1 French department producing traditional foie gras .

Discover the secrets of Aubrac Aligot

Specialty of L’Aubrac, taste this typical dish which incorporates mashed potatoes, melted cheese, cream, and crushed garlic. This combination results in a creamy, elastic, and velvety mixture that is similar to fondue.

The star of the South-West

Taste the star of any barbecue, the star of the Cassoulet; taste the Toulouse Sausage! You can find it by looking for the Red Label at supermarkets or, if you prefer, you can source it directly from local producers that set up their stalls at our markets. This is an artisanal sausage that can even be served with a salad if you are watching your figure.
