Wine of Faugères appellation
The vineyards of Faugères were delimited in 1948 and received an official appellation for the reds and rosés in 1982 and for the whites in 2005. Located north of Béziers and Pézenas in the Languedoc region of southern France, Faugères begins on the plains and climbs the foothills of the Cévennes, reaching up to 300 meters (984 feet) above sea level. The production zone extends into seven villages of the Hérault department: Autignac, Cabrerolles, Caussiniojouls, Faugères, Fos, Laurens, and Roquessels. 

The south-facing vineyards of Faugères sit on a highly infertile schist terroir that drains very well. One of the particularities of the soil is its high acidity, which actually gives low acid wines. The Mediterranean climate is dry and mild. Château des Estanilles, Domaine les Fusionels, and Domaine Jean-Michel Alquier offer excellent representations of this terroir. 

Red and rosé Faugères are made from Grenache, Lledoner Pelut, Mourvèdre, Syrah, and sometimes small doses of Carignan and Cinsaut; the whites are primarily Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Vermentino, with an occasional drop of Carignan Blanc and/or Clairette.
