STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The tiny appellation of Picpoul de Pinet is to be found on the shores of the Bassin de Thau to the South of Pezenas and is part of the sprawling Coteaux du Languedoc appellation. Chateau de la Mirande itself is located in the commune of Castelnau-de-Guers and is run by Joseph Albajan who makes a typically thirst-quenching Picpoul de Pinet from the ancient Piquepoul grape.
