AOP Pic Saint Loup is the most northern appellation in the Languedoc, located north of Montpellier, at the base of the Cevennes and Massif Central hills. The soil is chalky-clay on marly sub-soil which imparts elegance to the wines. The climate is influenced by the Mediterranean Sea which is 15 miles away, but is also continental due to the surrounding hills. The diurnal temperature variation can be significant, with over 25C difference between day and night time temperatures, promoting a long growing season. The average annual rainfall is 1,000mm which nourishes the vines throughout the warm, dry summer. The combination of these factors results in excellent maturation of the fruit and well-balanced wines. The vineyards are cultivated sustainably, ploughing takes place to ensure good aeration of the soil and since 2020, the estate has been in conversion to organic status. Harvesting takes place in the cool of the night.

This 15-hectare estate is the passion of Guilhem Viau, who produces multi-award-winning wines from vineyards situated at 658 meters’ altitude on the first spurs of the Cevennes and Massif Central hills. The Dame Jeanne range is named after his ancestor whom Guilhem describes as ‘an elegant, beautiful, very vivacious lady; a shepherdess on the high plains of the Bergerie du Capucin’, while ‘Les 100 Pas du Berger’ translates as the ‘100 Steps of the Shepherd’, which pays homage to the path she trod. The vineyards are cultivated sustainably respecting the environment of this rugged landscape and allowing for the full expression of the garrigue and wild herbs that characterize this countryside.
