Wine of Corbières appellation
The vineyards of Corbières stretch from the gates of Carcassonne to the Leucate and from the first foothills of the Pyrenees to the foot of the Montagne Noire. This appellation counts 13,500 hectares (33,360 acres) of vineyards that produce about 550,000 hectoliters of wine annually. 

The lands of this vast appellation reveal traces of a turbulent geological history. The vines are planted on mainly clay-limestone soils, with variances in different zones: red sandstone in Boutenac, rocky terraces in Lézignan, grey marl in Quéribus and Serviès, schist in the Hautes Corbières, and Corallian Limestone along the Mediterranean. The influence of the Mediterranean can be seen in the scrub brush known as garrigue that is found in the eastern part of the appellation; the extreme western part is influenced by the Atlantic. 

The red and rosé wines of Corbières are made from a number of different grape varieties: Carignan (up to 50%), Syrah, Grenache Noir, Lladoner Pelut, Mourvèdre, Piquepoul Noir, Cinsault, and Terret Noir. The whites are made from Bourboulenc (locally called Malvoisie), Grenache Blanc, Maccabeu, Clairette, Muscat (up to 10%), Piquepoul, Terret Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Rolle (aka Vermentino). Traditional vinification is used for the reds and whites, and rosés may be made by either saignée or direct pressing. Château d'Aussières, Château Vieux Moulin, Domaine Maxime Magnon, and Château La Voulte-Gasparets produce masterful examples of Corbières.
