The Montagnac Cellar

The Montagnac Cellar was been created in 1937 on Montagnac commune. Nowadays its soil encompasses 7 communes all along Thau lake in the mountainous foothills on the right shore of Hérault. Around 2000 hectares of vines are vinified on 2 different sites, Montagnac’s one being the main place of activity, and the most important vinification area in Hérault. A major part of the vineyard is located on clay- limestone soils containing marl. The climate is Mediterranean, dry and hot during summer, more temperate next to the sea. The Picpoul legend : an old legend tells that Picpoul grape was so browned and sweet at maturity that poultry on the shore of Thau lake enjoyed this sweet varietal when wine-harvest was coming, that’s how the name Pique Poule was born which has been modified then in Piquepoul and gave its name to the AOC Picpoul de Pinet.
