Wine, Our Strength of Character
Collioure also owes its reputation to its exceptional wine-making region. The Collioure AOC wines owe their strength and character to the sun-saturated Mediterranean grapes and the gusts of the Tramontane winds that sweep across the wine-growing region. Terraced vineyards, ruffled by the ocean breeze, produce a wine of unique and remarkable aromas. You can visit all the vineyards of Collioure, and try a glass of wine to discover this distinctive taste.
Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, the main grape varieties of the Collioure red, accord it a great strength with notes of red berry. The grey Grenache grape variety, added to make rosé, creates a stimulating wine with fruity aromas. The white combines white and grey Grenache to make a highly aromatic wine with floral notes.
Banyuls AOC, a lightly fortified wine aged in oak casks, is another specialty produced in the Collioure vineyard. Sweet and velvety, Banyuls offers a surprising aromatic richness.
