The proximity of the sea significantly influences the climate and the soils. The climate is very hot and dry during the summer, which forces the vine roots deeper into the soil in search of minerals and water. However, the sea reduces the impact of the heat and the breezes help to limit drought conditions and hydric stress. The complex soils of the plateau consists of silts and clays; sands and sandstones; and pebbles and conglomerates. The vines are meticulously pruned to control the vigour of the vine and the yields. The vines are cultivated sustainably and Ormarine has been certified Terra Vitis since 2018.

A region steeped in history, the vineyards of Pinet gained recognition as far back as Roman times when the Via Domitia traversed the vineyards, and in 1618 the Piquepoul variety was quoted by the famous botanist JB Magnol in his book Sylve Plantarium. The
history of the Ormarine Cellars dates back one hundred years, when in 1922 a group of winegrowers from Pinet gathered in the spirit of solidarity and formed a winegrower’s association, with the aim of enhancing the quality of the white wine production of the region. Recognition came in 1985, when Picpoul de Pinet was classified as an AOC. The Ormarine Cellars have paved the way, from Terra Vitis sustainably certified vines, they produce crisp, refreshing fruit-driven wines from this fashionable appellation.
