Les Vignerons du Pic and Cellier du Pic are cooperative wineries owned by grape growers in and around the villages of Assas, Baillargues, Claret, and Saint-Gély-du Fesc north of Montpellier. The co-ops now produces wine from several Languedoc appellations. These include AOC-named appellations such as Pic St Loup (the distinctively-shaped mountain that gives its name to the area), Languedoc Grès de Montpellier (the Château d'Assas reds you'll find on our everyday reds and reds to impress pages), and AOC Languedoc (called Coteaux de Languedoc until 2007), and also wines classified as Pays d'Oc IGP (called Vin de Pays until 2007).
The Pays d'Oc wines are mostly single varietals crafted as everyday wines, and First Vine is the first U.S. importer of them. Les Terrasses de Perret Muscat Sec is a white wine made from 100% Muscat grapes. While Muscat can be made into sweet wine, these grapes are harvested a bit on the early side and then completely fermented to make a dry wine with all the flavor of sweet Muscat. It's an intriguing wine with a fabulous floral aroma and a burst of fruit and also earthiness. Try it as an apéritif as well as with foods that pair with white wines.
