Val d’Orbieu was born. Val d’Orbieu is a company that is all about people. It stands for a certain vision of wine and wine growing, combined with a pioneering spirit that its founders wanted to be at the very core of the business. Their vision continues through their work today, its origins inspiring excellence.

Tasting Notes

This wine displays a beautiful, very light, rose petal pink hue, and fine, delicate floral aromas on the nose. It is lively and elegant on the palate with flavours of red berries culminating in a mineral and fruity finish.

Food Matches

Perfect to enjoy with Languedocian style rack of lamb.
